Season’s Greetings CoG Membership,
As nature slows and a hush comes over the land, we acknowledge coming of the Winter Holiday season once again. We take notice of the sacredness of this time of the year, for all of nature takes a much needed respite. We too should take this time to pause and reflect on the accomplishments of this current year, as it comes to a close. It is my sincere wish that you all take the time to share the joy and merriment of this holiday season with your family and friends. Be sure to Live, Laugh and Love in great measure…
Additionally, we will plan and set fresh goals for the coming New Year ahead. My greatest desire for the Covenant of the Goddess is its regrowth of our membership and the abundance of our combined talents and treasures. However, this will take the commitment of all of us to obtain this objective. I encourage all Local Councils to find time in the coming year to host a membership drive at an open Pagan/Wiccan event. With our new
entry level, individual Membership — Friend of CoG — we should be able to welcome many potential newcomers to join our magickal community! Please help us to inspire the youth to find a place with us in CoG, where they can grow and develop their magickal abilities.
As a gentle reminder, all of us hear the voice of the Goddess. She calls us to action and inspires us to face the challenges of the ever-changing world of life surrounding us. Stand beside the Great Lady, and aid in the charge she sets before us. Believe in the great works of magick that we can achieve, for we can accomplish much when we all work together on these significant tasks. Let the trust she places in us be met with fierceness, focus and intention.
The celebration of Yule prompts us to rekindle the hearth fires. May the flames of desire fill us with inspiration and longing to bring forth many great changes in the New Year.
In closing, I want to wish each and every one of you a Blessed Yule and Happy Solstice! May we all be encouraged to create the change we long to see in the Covenant of the Goddess and the world-at-large. Wishing you all Brightest Blessings this Holiday Season!!
With my Love,
National First Officer
