I've been working pretty hard on the Liturgist Guild Study Program recently. It's a decent program, but it has a book required that is listed as "recommended" and the .pdf file could use an update to reflect some current membership statuses. I also reformatted my entire Study Program page to include the Second Circle CTP programs that I'm going to have to do, as well as a link to the LGSP work I'm doing/have done. Raven has promised to inform me by the end of the week whether I've passed the GSP or not (he says if I haven't heard by Friday, I can start "pushing").

Coinciding with that, I'll be updating my webpage, I think. I will also be starting a new journal regarding "domestic cult practice" for the Liturgist Guild's SP.

In other news, Fifth Third Bank has put a stupid, annoying javascript ad over my account balance. "Learn How to Protect Yourself Online" it says. The "close" button doesn't work because the javascript seems broken, meaning that I can't access my online banking unless I hit the "stop" button on the browser before the java ad opens but after the page has loaded.

Well, let me tell you: being completely unable to access your account when you log in legitimately to view your balance is a very good security measure. I just hope that if someone cracks my account, they can't figure out how to crack the javascript load.

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPrefBranch.getIntPref]" nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://cookie/content/cookieTasksOverlay.xul :: CookieTasksStartup :: line 84" data: no]

This make it very difficult for me to determine if I do, indeed, have the cash to make it to Chicago this weekend, which is rather annoying.

It's a good thing I know how to turn off JavaScript in this browser. Too bad I have to reactivate it to do anything else.

part 2

I've not really heard a thing from anyone in AODA favourable about ADF recently, but it's not like we're being insulted, just that we're not important enough to mention.

Dude, you're HUGE and can't be avoided in any conversation that pertains to Neopagan Druidry. Was it intentional to list OBOD and not ADF? I don't know, but I can think of reasons why an archdruid might trim ADF as a descriptor - if both JMG and IB were interviewed, maybe a comparison/contrast was desired. Also, OBOD isn't as represented in the US as ADF is. Also, OBOD is a Druid Revival group just like AODA, and this is how JMG identifies himself these days (he mentioned that his daily work involves an exercise from OBOD tradition and one from AODA; I don't know if his ADF practice is as central to his life, yo). Seriously, has ADF not been featured in PanGaia before? When they are featured, do they pimp AODA or Keltria or OBOD or any other groups? If so, I've missed it. (rhetorically speaking, since I don't normally read PanGaia)


The above statement quoted comes more from the derth of mention ADF seems to get from them, and the constant chatterings about how cool what AODA is doing on my flist and (especially early in AODA's formation) on the occasional ADF list

Young love, dude. Either that, or AODA is doing some things that ADF members think are cool. But again, you're talking about chatter by ADF members on ADF lists, not discussions from ADF leadership; the fact still remains that ADF IS discussed on similar lists in AODA, even if AODA leadership doesn't pimp ADF in an interview. Whatever you're wanting from AODA doesn't seem to be anything that ADF is willing to give either.


(and AODA seems, to me at least, to be working toward a middle-ish ground between ADF and OBOD).

IMO, OBOD is "working toward a middle-ish ground between ADF and OBOD" (i.e., moving more toward mainstream Neopaganism), whereas AODA is drawing on the environmental orientation of OBOD as well as opening toward its fraternal and occult/lodge roots. Of course, the neopagan current is extremely strong in AODA, but a look at what projects it has started over the last couple of years points toward other priorities - the embryonic woodcraft/scouting movement of Earthcraft, the Gnostic Druid Fellowship, formation of its first Chapter House, and The Archdruid Report blog on postindutrial culture and peak oil, etc. AODA is more networky than churchy, from my experience.


I've noticed that some members of masonic-derrived orders (particularly AODA members) seem to be taking offense at that term [mesopagan]

Well, besides being a meaningless term. anything with a pre-fix of "meso" implies that it isn't quite something else; in other words, it's a derivative designation, implying that the object is insufficiently developed (like calling a godhi a "pre-Christian" rather than "non-Christian"). Also, many in AODA don't consider themselves "Pagan", so the term seems doubly irrelevant. Third, technically, AODA is not derived from Masonry, but was formed by a Mason and Rosicrucian; the name AODA actually was taken by the offshoot which removed the Order from Masonic affiliation. Lastly, it's only a British Druid order in the sense that its parent organization (like all Revival Druids) formed in Britain.

Anyway, it's late and I've annoyed you long enough. Hope you take my words in the spirit in which they're written.

My recollection of the article was that JMG was asked something about "other druidic orders", and Isaac was not. But, in fairness, I might just be making that up :) My memory is. . . pretty darn bad.

But regarding the question of discussions occurring on AODA servers, those aren't things I've seen. I have no information on that, and it's not publicly available for me to have access to, either.

Re: Your response to Meso: why couldn't I find that on the AODA pages? I'd have much rather mentioned that. :)

Hope you take my words in the spirit in which they're written.

Eh, no worries on that :) I'm difficult to annoy or offend.
