Change in acceptable offering
As of now Silver Branch Golden Horn is officially changing its policy on acceptable offerings: We now require that all offerings be biodegradable (yes praise offerings and songs are biodegradable). Things that cannot be burned or easily buried are also no longer acceptable.
It is the feeling of the council and the membership that as an earth loving group that we can no longer accept items that are harmful to the environment or the being that live in it including (but not limited to): lead, pewter, Non wood statuary (or other items), synthetic cloth, electronics, items including mercury (such as “mood” rings) and other items.
When in doubt ask yourself if I ate this would it kill me or make me sick (this does not mean that stuff has to taste good because incense is still okay) if the answer is yes then don’t bring it to ritual as an offering.
