So we’ve been working hard on the NPO
or, the “New Promethean Order,” and I thought I’d address the question “Why should I join?”
Well, for those of you who are tl;dr, here’s a short list of awesome things the npo offers members:
- learning opportunities
- a place to worship and celebrate together
- the possibility of connecting with other hellenic polytheists in real life
- a revivalist Hellenic polytheist forum
We are headed by sect leaders (one for each major god) who are all able to function as priests/ens/xs/esses and one-on-one mentors for anyone who would like guidance. Each priest/en/s/ess posts write-ups of every festival that has to do with their god, and we also observe minor traditions like Hekate’s Deipnon and the Noumenia.
We are building a place where people can celebrate together, and talk about all of their experiences with Hellenic polytheism on the Order’s forum.
Priests/ens/xs/esses will sometimes make posts about a certain topic that is relevant to their god or Hellenic polytheism in general, and members are encouraged to comment and challenge us to do better and interact with each other.
We’re less than a month old, but I think this could be something wonderful. :)
