Group Overview: On June 29, 2000, we formed an Eclectic Wiccan/Pagan Open Circle in Johnson City, Tennessee, under Congregational Agreement #16270, granted to us by the Universal Life Church, headquartered in Modesto, California. We initiated our Wiccan/Pagan Open Circle to attract those of various Pagan paths and all other interested parties to act as a networking hub of many hubs within the greater Tri-Cities area and beyond.
In January 2008, we decided to slowly begin teaching our Eclectic Wiccan Tradition to others on a very selective basis and on a one-on-one basis only, at the present time. May the Goddess and God lend their aid to our new endeavors. During a Harvest Gathering in September of 2009, Reverend Allen, formerly known as Medicine Hawk, was eldered into the Celtia Draconis Tradition and formally changed his name to Eoghann (Yoh-uhn) of Clan Campbell in honor of his mothers family name during this momentous rite of passage.
It is our most profound hope to foster continued interfaith dialogue within the community at large and to expand into a non-profit, tax exempt entity, serving the communities needs as they are made apparent to us. We are also members and affiliates of our Parent Coven, Dragon Palm Circle, an Eclectic Teaching Coven, located in Sevierville, Tennessee, Associate Members of The Church of The Sacred Garden and members of The Interfaith Alliance, a National organization of various religious faiths.
Orenda Circle also supports the United Religions Initiaitve , a global community of over 120 faith traditions, in over 70 countries. By working together, people of many faiths across the globe are transforming both their communities and the course of human history. The United Religions Initiative website may be found at http://www.uri.org and is committed to ideas that permit people with different world views to peacefully work together.
We currently have 2 members who are ordained ministers of the Universal Life Church: Rev. Edward D. Allen, D. D. , Rev. Penny A. Allen and Paul Hamby who is our Scribe. Rev. Allen is also an ordained minister of The Church of Seven Planes. Two of our members have also been listed as "Clergy" with the Mountain States Health Alliance, a consortium of 15 hospitals located in N. E. Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia to be called upon if requested by Wiccan/Pagan patients since October of 2000.
Together, we will gather both the knowledge and expertise for a continuation of exploring ourselves and the Universe as an autonomous extension of our Parent Home Coven, Dragon Palm Circle, http://dragonpalmcircle.org .
All Spiritual Paths Lead to the Same Center.................
In Service; Blessed Be,
