SLPS participated in the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable’s interfaith month by hosting an open full moon rite to the Norse Goddess Freyja. Held Sunday, February 21, 2016 from 7-9 at the Sugar Space in downtown Salt Lake, ten people gathered to see and participate in the Wiccan rite. The altar was decorated with bone runes, statues of the deities, flowers, and a drinking horn. A hand burned wooden slab of the rune Ingwas provided the perfect backdrop.
The society opened by invoking the Goddess Freyja and the All-father Odin. The song Freya by Kelliana on her album I Walk With the Goddess. The Goddess spoke to all those present and gave them advice for the next month to guide their lives. A rune was pulled for each person to give them further clarity and wisdom through divination.
The offerings were apple juice and cookies, after which sacred items presented to the Goddess were blessed and a question and answer period opened. People asked tradition differences, how Pagans view the world, and thanked SLPS for hosting as part of the interfaith.
