Immortality and Othala

This year the AFA will continue our focus on Immortality, the symbol that will guide us for this year is Othala.  The Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem tells us of Othala:

“An estate is very dear to every man, if he can enjoy there in his house whatever is right and proper in constant prosperity.”

As we focus on Immortality this year, we will pay special attention to our Hof effort, establishing physical houses of worship, sacred spaces of our own here in Midgard.  Also, we will focus on building up a solid faith community as a refuge from the Wolf Age.  We will focus on making the AFA, our church, an outpost of the Golden Age here in Midgard, where our folk can call home and feel comfort doing “whatever is right and proper in constant prosperity”.  By Midsummer 2020, we WILL have our second hof. By Midsummer 2020, we WILL have a place to inter the ashes of our dead. This will require help from all of you and I know that help will be there. Great things are in store, we will build a ladder to Immortality by stacking success upon success.

Midsummer at Óðinshof

What an amazing Midsummer gathering! This AFA Midsummer was one of the best ever. Thank you to all the volunteers that made this possible. Thank you to all our AFA family that came out to celebrate with us. It seems like no matter how large we make our Vé, there is never enough room for all the folk who attend nor enough room to contain the love and devotion poured out to our Gods and FOlk. Óðinshof was truly overflowing with blessings and brotherhood this year. We hope, wherever you were, that you had an amazing Midsummer and we invite all of our AFA family to join us next year at Óðinshof for Midsummer 2020!

New Apprentice Folkbuilder for AFA West

I’m happy to announce Steve Ingle as our new apprentice Folkbuilder . For those of you that don’t know him, he is a member of the Asmegir Kindred and lives in the East Bay of Northern California. Jessica is going to focus her efforts on the very important job of organizing Hof events, food drives, and upkeep. This should free up the local Folkbuilders to focus on organizing, outreach and admin. It’s a lot to juggle both, so thank you Jessica and thank you Steve for stepping up to fill the spot.
