Cakes and Ale

[Covener takes goblets from the Altar and fills them with Ale. He hands one to Priest and one to Priestess. They raise them high.]

Priest: As the Gods give to us, let us share with them. And let us give thanks for all the goodness they pour out upon the Earth. To the Gods!

All: To the Gods!

[Priest and Priestess pour libations then drink. They then pass the goblets around the Circle. The last to drink replaces them on the Altar. Covener takes the plate of Cakes to the Priestess. She holds the plate aloft.]

Priestess: Our thanks to the Gods for the foods they give us. Let us always see to it that aught we have we share, with those who have nothing.

[Priestess offers cakes to Priest, who takes one. She takes one herself and passes the plate around the Circle for all.]

Priest: Let us now sit and enjoy these gifts of the Gods. But let us never forget that without the Gods we would have nothing.

All: So be it!

[All sit and individual goblets or horns are filled and cakes are distributed.

At this point, any that wish to speak may. There is general talk until the Clearing of the Temple.]
