As a transplanted Crane gone Magpie, I find myself reflecting on my time with ADF and what it means to me to be a member. The ultimate conclusion is and has always been the same: I love the people. What do I love about ADF? I love the diversity. I love the grove autonomy that allows us the freedom to meet the vast and diverse needs of our folk across the country and throughout the world.
As a member of Mountain Ancestors, I love the focus on inclusivity, consent, legitimacy, and devotion. We are a church with a purpose. Mountain Ancestors Grove, ADF, is committed to promoting ethical polytheism through a virtue-based practice and ensuring the continuity of a diverse pagan people through relationship-building with the Deities, Ancestors, and Spirits of the Natural World known here as Colorado. We are dedicated to providing Religious Education to our members and to the community at large; serving to strengthen our community through our Commitment to Diversity, Multicultural Awareness, and Social Justice endeavors; and raising awareness through sound Marketing practices and growing Social Media presence. We further endeavor to publish relevant works for the folk of Mountain Ancestors as well as the greater polytheist community, including printed work and other multimedia materials; to build a foundation of respect for our Elders; to bring death-conscious awareness to the community; and to obtain Permanent, Sacred Space for the church.
This is the purpose of our church and the foundation of our ministry. This is what I love, and I am excited to be a part of these goals.
May all who pray with a Good Fire find the space they need to grow and to thrive.
