Toutas Member at Large or Member Lost?

Toutas Meber at Large or Member Lost?
Does your Church Grove Temple Coven or toutas" (tribe) / community have a membership category of ; Member at large,
Wondering member,
Honorary member,
Friend of,
Fellow X but pain in the Ass?

This would be someone that shares some or most of your common values and goals. Yet for any of many reasons has not committed to the (I will use this term to cover all types of structure here on) Toutas, or the Toutas has not not or is no longer  fully committed to or trust  Her / Him / IT.

This may be someone that does not want to share the responsibilities of the Toutas. Can not because of location or other reasons. Perhaps someone that has a conflict with other Elders in the Toutas management.

So instead of a full breakup moving to perhaps member at large is the best for both parties.

Member at large (etc) is also a great lets get better acquainted position for new people.

Commitments  and Rights of these positions:

Well if you offer these titles of course member type (X) has the right to use it if Public use of tiles is allowed.

Certain or all Toutas business would not be shared unless there was a compelling need to know.

Public Rituals are Public but at large members should have a honored position at them.

Private Rituals, well that depends on Ritual and why member is “at large”.

Tithe and real Physical (Time Work Money) Support:

As Toutas support is in almost all cases badly needed and often insufficient.

I recommend that in many cases Members at Large (etc) be ask to also give a tithe or other real physical support to the Toutas. After all if they do not support the Toutas in some ways, what purpose is there of keeping them on its rolls?

More of the Druid and the Child: Iron's Magick Fire.

The boy Druii was so young for the Heavy Title and chains he Bore and Wore.

He was in the deep dark forest tonight, it was a very dry season and no fire would be safe for many reasons, seen and unseen.

So he took out a very odd very short iron cauldron he had in his pack. Almost like a modern skillet. Setting it old a large flat rock that was under the leaves and soil he had just brushed away.

Had anyone besides the Fae been watching they would have been amazed at how he just seemed to know were to find this very flat stone buried in the leaves and soil.

He now added his meager meal of the day to the cauldron and with a stout Oaken wand began to tap its side. while quietly chanting.

Thing of Iron dance for me.

May your acorns (atoms) jump and sing.

Bring Suns heat that I desire.

Via Fae Magick without a Fire.

And soon the heat shimmered in the falling light.

It had been more then thirteen white Moons since the Old Druid Master had named him the Village Druii and his heir. The boy had not grow much but was now thin and harder then before. The other children of the village and tribe said his muscles now looked like the roots of the great Oak and his skin its bark as the played and laughed.

But of course never to his face and besides he never played anymore with them. The Elders and their parents treated the new druii like a God. but late at night would sometimes talk about him and the Old Ancient Druid Master. Some said the Master had crossed the great veil., others said no he was one of the ancient immortals of the great tales.

As always conversation came back to the boy. Why him why so very young what made him special? His parents were just common honest folk with barely enough land to for a Cow and Goat or two.

Yet all could see the Power had taken the Boy and left the Druii in his place. There were no alive that ever had challenged the Old Ancient Druid Master. Seems they never lived another thirteen dark Moons when they did. Again not of this was ever said when the boy was near, yet somehow there always seemed to be a Raven or wild Hair nearby if his name came up for discussion. <<
