This Easter I’ve decided to hold a light service for those with prayers for blessing and protection throughout the coming season to help give back to the community.
On Good Friday, I will make a mixture of river water, Blessed salt, and other traditional ingredients. The candles will be dressed on Easter Saturday and your prayers written on them; they will then be baptized in the same water and set in the bin ready to burn. They will all be lit exactly at sunrise on Easter Morning (April 1st) when, according to Appalachian folklore, the sun dances on the horizon.
The free flow rate for one candle to be set for you is $7-10. I have 25 spaces left. If you’d like to have your prayers set by the candle on Easter Morning click here.
After Easter, I will also be sending out the first newsletter for Tennessee Tales. This will give subscribers tid bits of info, chances to win giveaways, insider looks at my book also with updates on the publication of it. If you’d like to receive it then subscribe here.
As I’m coming close to finishing the book and turning it in, I won’t be as active here as I usually am, but I will be back soon. Until then, you can keep up with me on my social media pages below. Thank you for your readership!
