Alchymist wish I could be there. Right now I don't know what I'm going to do. Just have to wait and see. Play it by ear.

I wish I could be there as well Alchy. That sounds amazing.

Well, if you can somehow make your way to the Unitarian Church on Bertram Street in downtown Kelowna, B.C., at 6 p.m. on November 1st, we'll be sure to give you a warm welcome.

(And anyone else as well, of course.........)

Blessed Be everyone,

Alchymist.

Aww..16 hours from here? At least you're not at the other end of Canada..Ironically Nov. 1st is my day off! I won't be able to make it because of work..hmm <.< maybe I should just move to Canada eventually in the future..

Well that's just it, it has nothing whatsoever to do with religion any more, I imagine it once did in times where it mattered. Perhaps it started at the time of Oliver Cromwell, it's simply stuck as a traditional trend for many years without any thought being given to it at all. As I said, it's merely a tag similar to being tagged as black or white, Irish or Scottish and so on. These things are easily overlooked or forgotten about. I imagine it also stuck for a long time due to many children dying young of disease etc. and they wanted a particular religious orientation to carry out burial/last rites.
 
As an example, do you realise that it's only a number of years ago that a town just south of the border of Scotland, Berwick Upon Tweed, was at war with Russia? That came about because when war was declared, the monarch at that time stated that the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Berwick Upon Tweed are at war with Russia. When it was all over, there was a different monarch and that declaration was stated similarly but missing out the bit naming Berwick. So in official terms they were still at war.....

It  is so nice to hear from young people and how the world has changed . Whose your daddy seem not to mean anything anymore . When have you hear of anyone one calling on a Pagan priest/ess to be at the birth of a childe ?. Don't think in America anyone cares anymore except the Native American , you should see a blessing ceremony . To many of the teens are forgetting the true ways .

So sorry for them

I have to admit Drac, that is one cultural difference that is not widely known in the US (assuming I'm privy to what is widely known).  Over here your religion is dictated by what you choose to believe which may change throughout your life, and if someone wanted to include religion on birth certificates there would be an outcry you could hear across the pond and then some.

Interesting, because I don't think this is discussed much. Informative side trip there.

I don't actually think it's required anymore, I don't remember having that on my kids certificates.

I would love to be there but a little to far to travel from OZ, I will be attending a Party that is pretty good and all go out in dressing up, this is at a pub too all adults, so its great to see, but on this little Island I have not found anyone who is involved in this path. But then I have not really mentioned it eitehr as do not want to offend or cause any problems, as this is mostly a Muslim Island (this i have no issue with), But for me it is Beltane, but I often sit and contemplate my life and what I have learnt and speak with my loved ones who have crossed over. Seeing as I am new to my path I am still trying to learn what falls where and why and being in the Southern hemisphere is sometimes hard to figure out where I am at...but I am getting there...

Love and Light to all

Blessed be

xoxoxo
