The Five Lights of *ghosti: The Gifts You Bring
A healthy community is supported by the gifts of its folk so that it may then support each of those individuals. There are many ways to engage in this *ghosti relationship. Many ways to give, and many ways to receive. We can give the Gift of Prayer. We can give the Gift of Inspiration. We can give the Gift of Community. We can give the Gift of Wealth. We can give the Gift of Service. The more we strive to share these Gifts, the stronger our community will grow, and the more fulfilled we will be in Our Own Druidry.
The folk of ADF are its most valuable resource. Join Rev. Avende in exploring the gifts that you you can bring this community, and the ways you may pass on your gifts and knowledge to others.
