LITHA - The Longest Day

Litha Greetings to all those who follow a nature based spiritual path. Loving nature, the past and feeling comfortable adopting the rites and rituals that totally suit you is what it's about. Dangerous stuff - a spiritualism that need not have hierarchy or doctrines - if you don't want it to. Interesting that on Radio 4 Today programme, the Christian church have admitted to trying to recruit 'pagans' to their ways by going to events like the Summer Solstice and reading tarot cards etc. They miss the point, wholly and completely, and should look to boost their failing membership elsewhere.
