08:36 pm - A quick note from an ADF Clergy Retreat
It is when you feel least like praying that you need most to pray.

It is when you feel as if you have been gone so long from the sacrificial fire that you fear it can never be kindled again that you must strike a match and pour offerings.

It is when you have been gone so long from your fellow Druids that you fear they won't remember your name that you need most to walk up to them and open your arms.

It is when you feel you have failed your gods so deeply that they can never forgive you that it is most important to open your heart and let your voice sing strongly.

I have been shown this many times this week.

Yes - beautiful

Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving — it doesn't matter,
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times,
Come, friend, come.

There is a chant/hymn made from that poem, i have found it really powerful. Especialy with the canticle: though you have broken your vow a hundred times.

When I used to go to the Dances of Universal Peace, a dance/chant set to this poem was always one of my favorites. The words are very powerful.
