Ostara is the spring equinox, a time of balance. The days and nights are equal. It is a time that reminds us to bring our lives into balance. It is also truly spring. Winter is over. Hyacinth, daffodils and primroses are blooming. Trees are greening up. Fertility is rampant (it is no coincidence that bunnies and eggs are associated with Ostara and Easter!). Ostara is a time when we thank the dark time for the rest and the lessons learned, but it is now time to energize, to gear up for action, growth, fullness. It is all potential, both in the world around us and in our daily lives.

As Crossroads Tabernacle Church has always sought to be not just a Wiccan church, but also a church of Earth-based spirituality, it is with great joy that I am able to announce a new step that we have taken towards inclusivity of other paths to the Gods.
Let it be known that on the 28th of March, year 2015 of the Common Era, Timothy Paul Schneider, having performed the duties required of him, and having heard and acknowledged the call to clergy from the Gods, Ancestors, and spirits, has been duly accepted into the clergy of the Crossroads Tabernacle Church as a Pagan priest. We recognise his standing within the Northern Tradition and Heathen communities to perform those rites as are meet for such standing by that path, and welcome him as an ordained member of our clergy, able to perform all duties and public rites as described within the Ordains of the church.
