SLPS members met in Big Cottonwood Canyon Saturday, October 27, 2018 to honored the blessed kindred. Candles were lit next to a sacred fire. With snow on the ground already, some shoveling of the pit was required, but the logs burned true. The waning life for winter could be felt, as crisp as the chill in the hair and the frost on the ground.
Some poetry and music warmed the spirit as the fire did the body. Sacred Pomegranate wine was shared between attendees before hailing and farewells.

The Goddess and God united in love and became one for the day! The Great Day of Beltane, when the God and Goddess come together for their wedding ceremony and to make new life that will be born at Yule. The ceremony was held outside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, May 3, 2015 at 3pm. The altar was decorated with Celtic knot work items and plaques of the Goddess and God and of the God and God for Queer mysteries. A lesson on the meaning and origin of Beltane took place, and the offerings were white wine and strawberry short cake. The feastings later in the evening were Italian sausage spaghetti, green salad, and garlic bread with red wine.
