Yule

Yule is the celebration of the Light, of the sun and of the son. It is the longest night of the year, but in the very moment of the triumph of the Dark, the Light returns. It is the essential truth and contradiction – in the moment of greatest triumph lie the seeds of defeat. The sun returns. In mythology, this is also the time when the Mother gives birth to the son of light – no subtlety here with regard to the Christian mythos. In some traditions, this is where the Holly King and the Oak King battle and the Holly King (the winter tree) is doomed to be defeated. Yule is a time of great celebration –  the sun and light/life will return once again! Almost all symbols and actions associated with Yule and the Christian Christmas come from the Norse and are related to light, evergreen and life.

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.
