Heathen Prayer Week series 2021

When I go to the Jorvik Viking Festival, it’s a time of celebration, connection and reflection. A time to discuss the latest archaeological research, theories and academic publications. A time to connect to people I see year on year, to buy from craftspeople and traders, who have often travelled from all across Europe. A time to walk familiar roads, eat good food, learn new skills, a time to pray. A time to spend entirely within my faith.

This year, like countless other events, the whole festival has moved online. Last year we did short daily heathen prayer videos, focussing on different aspects of faith from around different scenic spots in York. This year we found we couldn’t travel to York, and so though we could still do a Heathen Prayer Week series from home instead.

So, here are the six short videos for days1-7.

The book that I’ve been reading prayers from all this week is ‘Gods own County Heathen Prayerbook’ https://www.facebook.com/thegodsowncounty by Dan Coultas and the Heathens of Yorkshire. The prayers are beautiful and inspiring, allowing me to appreciate different facets of faith, and accompanied by beautiful illustrations. Since buying a copy, this book has become a fast favorite for moments of celebration, comfort, reflection and quiet connection. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gods-Own-County…/dp/1090821980
