Paul Taylor shares this information:
Multifaith services based on Interfaith principles are up and running on the Isle of Wight. Officiated by Pagan priest Paul (Wiccan High Priest) and Jude-ith, a priestess in her 2nd year of Interfaith training, a pilot service was held last November which was very successful in generating a lot of local interest. Since that initial service we have held the following Multifaith services:
- Wintervale – at the Winter solstice
- Earth Stirrings – at Imbolc
- May day Ways – at Beltane
- Cornucopia – at Lammas
Within all those services we have dedicated Hindu, Buddhist and Pagan slots, and also use teachings from Essene wisdom, Sufi Islam, Tao, and western mysticism. We have found that the deep mysticism within all the religions relate to the Divine in the same way. That is the beauty of Multifaith, where that deep truth can be demonstrated to the public.
Multifaith on the Island is evolving and strengthening. Suddenly the Unitarian movement in the South has sat up and taken notice and declared that is the future for Unitarianism. The next service is on 30th September, where we shall let the Buddhist and Hindu control the service.
Yes it is hard work, but it is so rewarding and so much fun.
