A song for Sunday (29th) in final remembrance.

Announcements:
I. The temple expresses it's gratitude to AlswythCyan for her consistent contributions of Blessed Drink from which the holy power flows.

II. The current dead, last week not yet withstanding, are:
Ambar (July 9th), Ingref (July 14th), Tesla (July 31st), AlswythCyan (Aug 28th)
If anyone would like to attend or provide services or statements for Ambar and Ingref in the coming fortnight, their quarter vigil is coming to a close. Gravestones will be provided by the temple; appreciation to Bridget - and gravedigger services shall be hired at a price of 28F ((let me know if that is too low for this city))

----

III. The temple is seeking a new permanent/dedicated Priest and 1st Deacon to take over from Zuan and Duke_of_Earl sometime during the fortnight of September 29th - October 12th and thereafter. Interested parties should contact Zuan and Suu_Nee. Parties are not required to be affiliates of either Mucaz or Meridian.

Mucaz is always willing to welcome new pilgrims however should parties be interested in delving further into the faith.

Responsibilities are largely the same as ever regarding the offering of mass, the fulfilling of requests of the congregation, fixing broken windows, etc. The only new responsibilities of temples under Fenia; and really, I'm surprised this wasn't already done for the theocracy, are:

-to have a temple guard.
-to submit a weekly fiscal report to the mayor similar to those the mayors themselves file on behalf of their town halls.
-to utilize the sacrifice when requested to liquidate assets on behalf of, at various times, the people, the temple, the town hall, and the VR.
-to maintain a stockpile of emergency goods relative to healing, mood, and repairs including aloe, bandages, barrels of mint tea / klahua / alcohol, blessed cloths, egg drop soups, egg nog, holy resin, oatmeal cookies, pillows, and any other similarly themed items.

----

Thank you for your time and please have a very pleasant day.

Fluttering toward the doors of the Temple of Widu, from somewhere skyward, a parchment falls and attaches itself on the door used most frequently. On the outfacing surface, in large, legible writing, with very little embellishment:
Citizens and Faithful of Widu,

Greetings and good health to you and yours.

News has reached us that the Temple of Widu has graced our Diocese. In order that services may be held, an appointment will be made from those who notify our office of their interest. It is always a noteworthy event, and one of import, to appoint Deacons, Priests, those who have an active interest in pursuing religious studies, helping their fellow creatures, keeping alive the Faith.

Prayerfully, any who are interested will indeed make known their willingness to serve.

May you all live long, prosper, and may your Life be eventfilled and interesting.

Your servant,
Suu_nee

Aingeal leaves a note for the Kitteh and Suu_nee

My husband should be here tomorrow. There are no other priests in Widu at this time.

Duke coughs a bit in the early morning air and with a sigh out through his nostrils, begins to think a reply for Karina and Grandfather to write out and deliver.
Greetings, madam mayor. I hope this morning finds you well.

Regarding an issue potentially of mere semantics, may I offer a clip from my own dossier:
Primary Way: Sorcerer
Positions: Priest (Fenia)
Regarding what may be potentially be another issue, may I remind your grace, that Fenia, being not The Theocracy; and being within a trans-regal diocese; I hope it is understood that the overseer, while indeed in cooperation with the secular establishments of Bravia and Fenia; does maintain authority as regards the anointing of Priests.

His grace the Marquee Anessen, should he truly wish the position, will, I am sure, of course, be truly considered for it - along with all comers.

His majesty has already authorized me to submit recommendations to Himself and the Overseer, and to inquire of applicants whether they have indeed mastered the path; as one whom can bless cloth without the aide of a third party is actually preferred, though not ultimately required; and indeed one may continue towards mastery of the path whilst already engaged upon it.

Applicants who do not become the priest may still be subsequently considered for the roles of deacons, or other roles involved within the faith or faiths of their choosing, and may indeed eventually rise to the position of priest when relief of a previous priest shall occur. Thus the temple does not wish to deter or dissuade the application process at this time; even should one or more front runners already be in the hopper for final consideration.

Thank you for your time, and please have a very pleasant day.

There was no mass held today. I ask that Anessen be installed as quickly as possible to replace the King so that the creatures do not go another day without the proper attending.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Indeed. It seems that today's mass was actually held yesterday, perhaps by clerical staff loyal to the previous management, who would take no entry but their own until this morning. My deepest and most humble apologies to all effected by the delay; but I hadn't arrived until just now from my new camp. I shall endeavor to be more punctual. I believe everything may be sorted now as regards the clerical staff however and I should have today's mass ready in a few more minutes. I am just trying to remember a good hymn now.

[*]Note: Mass in Imperius, prepared and intended for Sunday mass was delivered at least 5 hours earlier than one would think possible. Perhaps it wasn't our hardworking and dedicated clerks and clerics, but rather a Bugaboo that tricked its way through to foil and perhaps foul the Temples.

Also note, the venerable Anessen has now been appointed and charged with the duties of priest of the Temple in Widu. This is a serious duty, but one we feel confident in placing.

Any creature yet interested in being considered will still need to make known their interest and confirm their willingness to serve.

My apologies to the clerical staff. I'm afraid I've become a bit overly cynical in recent weeks. I shall endeavor to become less so.

[*]Swest Kitteh, cynicism and doubt are natural counterparts to Faith and Honesty. We all need some of each to maintain balance. Only the naive and oblivious can hold free of those flipsides.

I would that we all hold them each in balance, to hold onto sanity as long as is possible.
