I attended an October 24th meet at my church called, Gathering in the Community - Joining the Circle. It's about seeking a smaller group within the large church congregation community with whom to make connections and for spiritual development.
Before the gathering, we were emailed notes to prepare for the meeting. One such notice was to bring a small item representing who we are.
Above, is what I brought. I've been collecting bookmarks since the 1970's, now having about 275 bookmarks from all over the world. But sometimes I make them, like the one above. Bookmarks is a special collection of mine and the longest collection of 3 things I collect.
Also, I decided to mention what pretty much sums up who I am as a person, what I most talk about and what I most study/read about. To know that I'm a pagan and a vegan is to already know a lot about me. So I was very proud to show this bookmark off. I had just made it the night before the gathering!
Also, I met a fellow vegan there! Out of about 12 of us, there are 2 vegans so far.
