Statement on Separation of Families

Thor's Oak Kindred is part of the Kindred Program of the Troth, an international Ásatrú organization dedicated to inclusivity, education, scholarship, and training. Our goði (priest) is a member of the Troth Clergy Program. Together, we strongly support the statement on separation of families issued this week by the Troth:
While The Troth recognizes the complexity of the immigration issue, the organization condemns the separation of families and the incarceration of children. We call upon Congress and the White House to end this inhumane policy, to stop using these children to score political points, and to work together to develop sensible immigration laws.
We hope that you will stand with us against the atrocities committed by our own government, regardless of your own political party affiliation.

Celebrating Springtime

On Friday, Thor's Oak Kindred celebrated Vanir Blót. In our Ásatrú practice, this annual event centers on peace, prosperity, love, and springtime. We honored deities Njörð, Nerthus, Frey, and Freyja. We thanked Sun, Moon, and land spirits. We performed our version of the Old Norse dramatic poem Skírnismál ("Sayings of Skírnir"). We remembered those now gone whose deeds have shaped our lives. We made personal offerings into the fire.

You can see photographs from the event on the new Thor's Oak Kindred Facebook page. Be sure to follow the page to learn more about who we are and what we do!

Our First Kindred Wedding

Today, the members of Thor's Oak Kindred celebrated a wedding together for the first time! Our goði (priest) worked with the couple to design an Ásatrú rite that reflected their love for and commitment to each other. At the center of the ceremony, the bride and groom held our oath ring and made formal oaths before Thor, Vor, kindred, and family. It was a beautiful ceremony on a perfect day.
