For those taking the Moon Circle class in person, or wanting to follow along from home, here are this month’s links.

HOMEWORK

Homework is “pick your level.”  You are not expected to do all of these things.  These are ideas to help you decided what YOU want to study more.

For final projects, will you create a peg doll of a personal deity or one you studied this term.

Thinking
Questions:
 This month we study “Hestia: Hearth and Home”

Reflect on these questions:

What does “home” mean for you? Is it a place or places, present or past? Perhaps the experience and meaning of home for you is more connected with persons than with place.

Or is home a state of mind, a place you can access anywhere you are, even in solitude?

Has the meaning, the actuality, or the experience of “home” changed for you over time? If so, how?­

What do you need to feel you are 
“at home?”

Have you ever felt homesick or comforted someone who was homesick? Describe what it was like.

How do you practice hospitality in your life?

When has hospitality been extended to you and how has it made a difference in the quality of your existence?

Hospitality is more than just making a nice table setting for someone; what gives hospitality it’s religious dimension?
