The Trú Way

202

It can’t even be said that we “worship” the Holy Powers of the Æsir and Vanir.

We hail them to join us for a shared meal.

The ancient Trú custom … “a gift for a gift”…is still a part of our lives.  It is one of our Nine Noble Virtues called “Hospitality”.  When you invite a friend to a meal you also give them a small gift.  They, in turn, would know enough to bring a small gift for you.

So in our “worship service”, called a blót,  we hail the Holy Powers to join us for a meal.  We offer them a gift (sacrifice) and they in turn give us a special blessing.
