ADF’s Response to the Current Events

Standard
The following is a statement from the Mother Grove of ADF.
 
ADF IS AN ANTI-RACIST ORGANIZATION
 
In light of the recent death of George Floyd the Mother Grove is resolved to explicitly and publicly re-affirm our identity as an anti-racist group. Ar nDraiocht Fein does not condone or approve of any form of racism. We believe that all humans deserve equal rights and are devastated by the actions that have occurred this week. We mourn with the family and friends of those who have lost their lives. We stand as allies and friends.
 
We believe we must examine racism including the actions of individuals and the institutional racism embedded in our society. We are resolved to explicitly and publicly affirm our identity as an anti-racist group. We are shocked by the actions of our fellow humans and committed to working with others toward an equal and fair society.
 
We ask the Kindreds to grant us the wisdom to know what actions to take, and the perseverance to continue when the work is difficult. Allow us the vision to see the positive pieces of our community and the courage to work to improve the negativeness. Let us show hospitality through our inclusion and appreciation of diversity. May our unified piety bring us together as a community, as we find balance through moderation. We choose to maintain our integrity by upholding these virtues.
 
We pray for strength and safety for those who are using their voices to protest injustice. We pray for those in law enforcement who are engaging their communities and continuing to work against the systemic faults in our society.
 
We will continue to work proactively to cultivate an environment where differences are embraced and the diversity of human expression is valued. ADF believes that our community is stronger when all members have a voice and are encouraged to contribute.
 
In Service,
The Mother Grove

ALL PUBLIC EVENTS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!

The CedarLight Board of Directors has been following the developments in the pandemic closely. We place top priority on the safety of all who come to or live at CedarLight Center. We are sad to make this announcement but the safety of all, especially those at higher risk must come first.

CedarLight will follow the recommendations of the CDC, state and local governments, and other local churches.

This includes Sunday morning and afternoon events, high day celebrations and other smaller public events. We will be posting ritual scripts online along with other updates and resources. We very much want you all to stay healthy and safe. Our priests, liturgists, and hearthkeepers with continue to make sacrifices at home and we encourage you all to do the same.

May the gods bless and protect us during this time.
