In order to start a journey, you have to take the first step, right? So here I am, taking that step. There are a lot of reasons for that, some of them more convincing than others. But step I shall.
It seems like a good time to take this step, too, since I will this month be taking the role of Steer for the Troth. Some of the articles I intend to write here will relate to that role as I work with our Rede, our volunteers, and our members to fulfil on our mission in this world of Midgard: to be a viable resource for Heathens.
Some of the articles I intend to write here have to do with my personal practice, with discussions I’ve had about ways that we are recreating and, to be frank creating, a practice that works in this modern world. Much, after all, has been lost to the mists of time that we will probably never recover. And even if we can, the world has moved on in the last thousand years, some of it we shouldn’t recover. We need instead to build practices that fit now, today, in this age and yet still honor our ancestors, our Gods, and the world around us.
I’m glad to say I’m not alone in this task. Asatru is the fastest growing religion in its home county Iceland. Every year more and more people are hearing the call of our Gods… and answering.
If there is a question you would like me to address, please don’t hesitate to tell me. Please ask. If I don’t know, all the better. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
