Congratulations on Naming!

Many congratulations to Djeri, who received her Shemsu name in ceremony this evening after a long wait, and the newborn son of Payi and Padmé, Clark, who received the Rootname of Raemheb-ka and a big group of godparents at his Rootnaming!

Happy birthdays, Set and Aset!

Before I head into the shrine for my overnight vigil before the Coronation ceremonies I thought that I would check in with all of you and let you know that the Wep Ronpet Retreat is continuing with great excitement and anticipation.

Happy Birthday, Set - and the Year 16 Oracle

Em hotep to the children of Netjer!

First of all, happy birthday to Set! His morning has come in with a spectacular thunderstorm, as it often does here in Chicago. The lightning is very beautiful as it arcs around the darkened sky and we pack up the last several boxes and head to the conference center to begin Year 16's Wep Ronpet Retreat.

We'll check in as we can over the next few days but before I head off I wanted to share something I know a number of you have been waiting on. Without any further delay, please accept the following information about Year 16, the Year of Ra and Khnum:

The Oracle of Aset for Year 16
(given at Aset Luminous, July 2008)

May it be a prosperous, happy and healthy year for all.

Happy Birthdays, Wesir and Heru-wer!

Em hotep to the children of Netjer!

Wesir's birthday has completed and now we are beginning the birthday of Heru-wer. Everyone's running around the temple quite busy getting ready for W'ab training to start in the morning with our four new candidates, and it's my understanding that early arrivals for Retreat itself (which starts Monday) are already in town and have been doing both some fellowship and some service activities this weekend. Dua-Netjer for all of you and I'm very excited I'll be seeing you soon!

The temple will be a very busy place over the next week as we celebrate the Five Days Upon the Year and then add in the Wep Ronpet and post-Wep Ronpet ceremonies as well. Please keep us in your thoughts and your prayers as we will keep you in ours. I'll check in as often as I can.

Much love, and happy Birthdays!

The Naming of Shemsu

...is a difficult matter... (sorry, T.S. Eliot).

Really it isn't all that difficult, and from time to time, the Kemetic Orthodox community engages in a ritual to name those who have newly converted to the faith.

Rev. Craig (or Kai-Imakhu Sepedher Antybast, if you're reading in Kemetic) recently said some pretty awesome things about Naming and Names. I invite you to listen to him on the relevant podcast.
