Order of Service, 2012 Litha Ritual

Our Intention: To celebrate and express our gratitude for the fullness of light and life.

The Plan: Children are welcome at this ritual.  The kids will ground, cast the circle, and call the directions.

We will call the Fairy Queen and Fairy King.  Then one member will tell a story.

After the story, we will create gifts for wildlife by spreading peanut butter and bird seed on pine cones and other natural objects. We will gather these on the altar and raise energy by dancing around them, singing the Giving Song.

Let us take what we have been given 3x
Let us take it and give it away.

Let us bless what we have been given 3x
Let us bless it and give it away.

Let us hold what we have been given 3x
Let us hold it and give it away.

Let us love what we have been given 3x
Let us love it and give it away.

Let us take what we have been given 3x
Let us take it and give it away.

Once the altar objects have been charged, we will distribute some around the area. Some will be left for people to take home after the ritual.

We will prepare food on the BBQ and feast, with the oldest and the youngest among us blessing the food.

We will devoke and open the circle.

To bring: Some protein to cook on the grill (preferably something fairly quick and easy, like hot dogs/burgers/veggie hotdogs or burgers) and a side dish or dessert to share; bug spray; and lawn chairs.
