A home for alternative spirituality

Annual Patron Pageant

Late Fall

A longstanding tradition, the Patron Pageant is a fundraiser and charity event which is used to elect our patron god or goddess for the year. This patron will watch over our church and inspire us in our social action and special projects. In 2014 we raised over 300 pounds of food and toiletries for the homeless through Good Samaritans of Garland. It is our most popular and most successful fundraiser, and anyone may participate.


Sunday Evening Service

Every Sunday - Gather at 6:00, service at 6:30

Hosted by members of the Veritan faith. Energized and diverse, many young adults. Service includes group music, solo performances, communal ritual, meditations, ancient storytelling, and breaking of hot bread. The Godheads of mythology are celebrated, though worshipers of all walks of life attend and enjoy. Children are welcome.



High Courts - Ritual and Feast

6 times yearly - See Calendar

A High Court is an elaborate and engaging ritual of much larger proportions than what you would find on a Sunday. It is focused on one of the Six Gods in Verity, and the following feast is planned rather than potluck style.  There is music, lots of color, and the Speakers tend to have a fun twist planned for the evening.  Check out the Google Calendar for updates on High Court details!


Our Whole Lives - Lifespan Sexuality Education - Ages 18 to 35

February - April 2016

A curriculum supported by the Unitarian Universalist Association, Our Whole Lives (OWL) is both informative and discussion-based. It studies the journey of sexuality: what we've experienced (or not), myths we've heard, and answers to questions like "Am I normal?" and "Is this safe?" Ages 18 - 35, all orientations and gender identities, come learn and choose your own level of involvement. There will be a male and a female facilitator within this age group.


Seasonal:

The Pagan Sabbats

Scheduled periodically


Sacred Journey is coordinating with outside covens to bring you celebrations of the Sabbats, the 8 neo-pagan holidays as represented by the Wheel of the Year. The most commonly recognized Sabbats are as follows: Midwinter (Yule), the Winter Solstice in December;  Imbolc in February to mark the first stirrings of Spring; the Spring equinox Ostara; Beltane (May Day), traditionally the first day of Summer in Ireland; Midsummer or Litha (Summer Solstice); Lamas or Lughnasadh (the first harvest); the Autumn Equinox Mabon; and finally Samhain (pronounced Sah-win), the last harvest celebration and the end of the old year, also known as All Souls Night. Keep an eye on our Google Calendar for who we will have join us and when! Sabbats are joyous occasions to experience.
