First of Summer
presented by Rev. Carol Bodeau

The traditional Irish and Scottish festival of early summer, celebrated around May 1st, is known as Beltane.  Usually honored with giant fires understood to protect the rising crops and the growing livestock, Beltane is still celebrated in many places around the world.  What is rising in your life this early summer season? And what do you need to call in to protect the new growth you are hoping to nurture?
