A HANDBOOK FOR WICCAN CLERGY
5.0 out of 5 stars A must have, December 7, 2007
"I recently purchased this book and I found it to be very good. It has
rituals for the rites of passage, several pagan myths and a how to for
teaching meditation and pastoral counseling. The pastoral counseling
section is just a basic lesson that focuses on listening which is the
hallmark of a good counselor. Chapters 17 and 18 are about the God-
dess and the source of All. I found these two chapters the most
interesting. An excerpt from chapter 17: "To those of the Wiccan
faith, woman is not corrupt, sex is not corrupt and life is not
corrupt. Rather Divinity is manifested in all of them. Therefore to us,
women is to be honored as a representation of the Goddess, not
regulated to the role of temptress and evil. From the union of God and
Goddess, Male Female, Life emerged. This Mystery of generation is a
Holy Mystery, a cosmic act, and it is in our nature to enjoy this
sacred act without guilt or shame. All acts of love and pleasure are
Her Rituals." This paragraph really speaks to the core of my beliefs
and it is the main reason I walk this path now. I feel that this book
is a must have for all that want to be clergy."
In reading through the book, I found 4 printing errors. There was the one omission on page 9. Beginning with line #3
In the book it reads; HP “I charge you both to give (name) a stable, warm and loving home. To teach him/her gentleness and how t
It should read; HP “I charge you both to give (name) a stable, warm and loving home. To teach him/her gentleness and how to work out differences so that his/her life will know harmony.”
I found one insertion on page 93. Beginning on the second line up from the bottom, which would be line # 23 and continuing to line # 1 on page #94.
In the book it reads; “sphere. (Pause) Now take a deep breath in and blow cauldron after the meditation. Begin by casting and consecrating the circle, and calling it outward so that”
It should read as “sphere. (Pause) Now take a deep breath in and blow it outward so that”
The insertion is “cauldron after the meditation. Begin by casting and consecrating the circle, and calling”
Another omission is found on page #308, on line # 7. In the book it reads as; “face their transition in” then it stops before the sentence is completed.
The text should read as; “face their transition in peace. At such times, the role of Clergy is to give comfort and hope both to the dying and to those loved ones that will remain.”
There is a dropped word on page 176 in line 18. The sentence reads as; “Much akin to an attractive young female wearing nothing but a blindfold, walking into a room full of testosterone young boys, who have few morals and just finished watching an adult movie marathon, and inviting them to do as they will with her body.”
It should read as; “Much akin to an attractive young female wearing nothing but a blindfold, walking into a room full of testosterone-charged young boys, who have few morals and just finished watching an adult movie marathon, and inviting them to do as they will with her body.”
The process of getting the printing errors fixed in the Handbook has begun. It may take about 4 weeks before they will be completed. If any one has bought a book and needs the corrections, please just email me off list and I will be happy to send those to you. Or you can just copy, paste & print them out from the text above.
