Fallen But Not Forgotten
This weekend is a reminder of the sacrifices that have been made for freedom. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union Soldiers. The south too had its day of Decoration, but the date of celebration varied through out each region of the nation.
On June 28, 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Holidays Bill, which moved four holidays, including Memorial Day, from their traditional dates to a specified Monday in order to create a convenient three-day weekend. The change moved Memorial Day from its traditional May 30th date to the last Monday in May. The law took effect at the federal level in 1971.
Blessings On this Memorial Day Weekend everyone. Please have a safe and relaxing extended weekend! And spend time remembering what this weekend is really all about.
What do you do when one of your peers questions your right to hold the titles, or position you’ve worked long and hard to achieve? Do you get angry and fight back? Do you ignore their intolerant comments? Do you try to correct their misconceptions? Or do you meet their hatred with love?
I received a private message on Facebook from someone questioning my credentials and, how do I put it, my “right” to say I’m a metaphysical minister, because clearly I’m pagan.
Well of course I am, I’ve never made any secret about that. I tried to respond to the message but I’m blocked from the seemingly fake account and can not respond.
Sadly the message seems to have come from a member of a private FB group I’m part of as an alumni. Now I surmised this because the message shared quotes I’ve made in posts that are only available and seen on the group page. What made this even more shocking, this is a group of spiritual ministers! Say what?! Continue reading →
If you are unfamiliar with Reddit, it is an online social media community where users vote on content. There are sub-communities, or subreddits, that any user may create that are independent and moderated by a team of volunteers. Subreddits cater to specific topics and allow you to follow those topics on your Reddit home page. Such as reddit.com/r/tarot, reddit.com/r/pagan, and reddit.com/r/paranormal and many more!
Reddit users submit links to online content and vote on which stories and discussions are important. Anyone can join Reddit. Anyone can participate.
President of Spring’s Haven, Rev. Vickie Carey (Spring Wolf) announced today “We are particularly happy to expand our social media presence onto Reddit”. She added, “Reddit has become one of the largest and most active social media sources on the net and we hope we can reach more friends and like-minded people.”
We’ve been monitoring our presence over the past week and we’re already pleased with the results. Our analytics clearly have shown us how popular Reddit has become for users around the world, looking for news, information and stories. We have seen an uptick in traffic here on Spring’s Blog (Springwolf Reflections) and on our business site Spring’s Haven – Spiritual Center.
We look forward to seeing some of you on our new Reddit page and we hope you’ll add your comments to our posts and let us know you stopped by.
