Fellowship Members.  Beltane is the pagan celebration of the marriage of  Mother Earth to Father Sun.  It is at its heart a celebration of the fertility of the greening earth and its fields.  Agrarian societies so dependent for survival on their harvests put great stock in blessing the fields and streams so that their yield would be good in the late summer and fall.  The Maypole is the symbol of the fertilization of the Earth during her marriage ritual (which also includes the wedding night!).  Dancing the Maypole was considered a way of enhancing that fertilization and creating good luck for farmers.

Come this Sunday and celebrate the marriage of Earth and Sun .  Come Dance the Maypole with us!
