Guest in Your Pulpit - Lisa Maxey
Lisa Maxey is member of the Unitarian Universalist (UU) Congregation of Greater Canton, OH.
Titles of programs/sermons and a brief statement of content on each:
- Wiccan Wheel of the Year—This service is an introduction to each of the eight Wiccan sabbats.
- The Shared Origins of Pagan and Christian Spring Holy Days—In this service I discuss some of the many common themes between the Wiccan sabbat Ostara and the Christian holy day of Easter.
- Ostara: The Welcoming of Spring and New Growth—This service involves a flower and seed blessing, an egg visualization and an Ostara egg hunt for the youth.
- Beltane: A Divine Handfasting—This service celebrates the sacred union of the Lady and Lord, the building of the "need fire" and the dancing of the Maypole where applicable.
- Honoring the Sun God: A Summer Solstice Celebration—This service honors the Sun at its peak and its affect in our lives.
- Mabon/Autumn Equinox—This service celebrates a spirit of thanksgiving and balance in our lives.
- Samhain: A Spiritual Communion of Souls—A service dedicated to honoring and remembering departed loved ones through readings, song, meditation and the building of a community altar. Past presentations of this service have been very powerful.
NOTE: I strongly believe one's experiences are much more meaningful the more one is actively engaged in those experiences. Therefore, my services are generally participatory and interactive.
Availability: Anytime within 120 miles of Canton, OH, although longer distances can be negotiated.
Fee arrangements: Standard honorarium for your congregation.
