|The Stone Peoples
NorthWind takes an interesting approach to the concept of Diety. We recognize the God and the Goddess, but we also honor a third power: the Community of the Stone People -- those people world-wide (and throughout time) who, like us, are committed to the Earth and the natural universe and the concept of divinity in all things. We, therefore, usually do our rituals with three people as High Priests/esses and we invoke all three Powers at the beginning of our rituals. Many of our rituals involve several more individuals than three as we find this a further aid to our goal of doing powerful ritual.
Honoring Community in ritual is also a way of honoring the Divine found within each of us. By calling Community, we acknowledge our link to the Gods; to those who follow similar paths past, present and future; to the ancestors; and to ourselves.
