Upcoming Starry Bull Chat, Thursday 3 July 2014

Happy July, Thiastai!

We have a few events coming up, so I wanted to update you all. Thursday, 3 July, is going to be the Feast of the Dionysian Prophets! In honor of this festival, our chat on Thursday (21:30 EDT, using Zoho) will focus on the Prophets of the Thiasos and what makes one a Prophet in this tradition.

The following Thursday, 10 July, may need to be pushed forward to Monday evening, since the 10th is the day before the POLYTHEIST LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE! Whooo! I’ll keep you guys posted on what time/day we decide, or if we decide to cancel the chat for that week. I’m sure it will depend on how much last-minute conference brouhaha there is.

Anywho, here is a link to Sannion’s post about the Festival.  Remember:

  • Libations of whiskey are preferred (at least for the Lizard King).
  • Sannion will be doing divination Thursday night, so email him if you have something you’d like divined.
  • If you can’t make the chat but have questions about the Festival, the Prophets, or the difference between prophecy and divination, post them here or the corresponding thread on the Facebook page and we’ll be sure to bring them up in the chat!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
