Descriptions of Online Events:

Young Adult & Occult is a space for Pagans in their late teens and early twenties (roughly 15-25) to build community and learn together that is held monthly at OLOTEAS events (and sometimes offsite). At this month's Young Adult & Occult: We will host an open community discussion on Discord. Pop in and chat with other community members in your age group!
Go directly to Discord platform: https://discord.gg/5t46a9y
2:45 pm Zoom meeting opens – See Next Event webpage for Zoom link
3:00 pm Zoom Opening Circle (with Jayson)
3:20–4:00 pm Zoom Workshop: Who Wrote the Quran? (with Kimberly)
Relying on "Who Wrote the Quran? What Sources Were Used?" from the YouTube channel UsefulCharts, after the 20-minute video we will discuss questions such as: For holy texts (yours or others') what are your thoughts about God(s) vs. Man as authors? Is it important for Pagans to understand the history and context of other religions? And how do you see that the views of holy books affect politics in today's world?

4:10–4:45 pm Zoom Crafting: Muted Pagan Carol Singalong & Paper Snowflakes! (with Kimberly)
This is a half hour where we all mute and sing along to a Pagan Carol playlist on YouTube (or just listen) while making paper snowflakes (or other preferred crafting :)). All vids have on-screen lyrics and a sheet of snowflake patterns is provided for download. This will be Zoom-muted so that all can hear the carols – and so everyone can sing along as loudly as they want! Come join in the fun for some Pagan Holiday spirit. :)
Please have some paper and scissors for snowflake-making.
