a. Gods and Goddesses Invocation
The Children of Earth call out to the Gods and Goddesses of all our peoples!
We call to You in the Heavens, shining in the skies!
We call to You in the Midworld, striding across the land!
We call to You in the Underworld, guiding and guarding our Dead.
Shining Ones, come to us, we pray!
Let our love bring You to our Fire!
Let our devotion bring You to our Well!
Join us, that we may give to You as You give to all.
Let there be peace between us,
And let all prosper in our warm friendship.
Shining Ones, accept our sacrifice!
(Whiskey is offered to the Fire)
Close your eyes, Children of Earth. See the Gods and Goddesses, fully 60 feet tall, as they come and join us here! Hear their laughter on the wind and feel their heavy footfalls as they walk upon the ground.
