Litha is midsummer (the summer solstice) , the fullness of the year. This is the triumph of the light, the longest day of the year, but as with Yule, its opposite on the Wheel of the Year, this is also the night of its defeat, the night the light begins to fade. The dark begins to rise. The Oak King (the summer tree) battles the Holly King again and the Holly King wins. Litha is the festival of fullness and completion. The fields have been sown, the crops are growing well. It is not yet time for harvest, but all is ready for it. The Mother is pregnant with life. The celebration of Beltaine has borne fruit. This is also one of the nights when the faeries are about. Traditionally the faerie, the sidhe, leave their mounds and walk their paths. It is not good to encounter the fey, for they are not kind to mortals. A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Tam Lin, changeling stories all attest to the power of Midsummer and the power of the fey.

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.
