Beltane – May 3

Denton CUUPS Beltane: The Four Hallows of the Tuatha De Danann
Saturday, May 3
Gather at 7:00 PM, start promptly at 7:30

Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
1111 Cordell Street, Denton, TX 76201

The Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans invites you to join us for our Beltane circle.  We will begin with our traditional Maypole dance, then explore The Four Hallows of the Tuatha De Danann.

When the Tuatha De Danann – the children of the Goddess Danu – invaded Ireland, they brought with them the Four Hallows, four items of Otherworldly origin.  They are The Sword of Nuada – no one ever escaped from it once it was drawn, and no one could resist it; The Spear of Lugh – no battle was ever sustained against it, or against the warrior who carried it; The Cauldron of the Dagda – no company ever went away from it unsatisfied; and The Lia Fail – the stone that would cry out in the presences of the true King.

Though the Hallows are represented by objects, they are more than things.  Our ritual will explore their essence and how we can work with them to learn and grow, and to do the work of the Gods in our world.

Our circle will be outdoors unless it is raining – please dress for the weather.

Please bring an item of food or drink to share after the ceremony. As always, a donation of a dollar or three to help defray costs are appreciated, but not required.

Children 10 and older who can participate maturely and respectfully are welcome to join in.  Childcare for younger children will be available if requested by Tuesday, April 29.
