I attended my first Croning Ceremony yesterday at Ebenezer herchurch Lutheran. I didn’t know what to expect. Seven woman, identifying as elders, received a personal blessing and were showered with gifts (tangible and intangible). It felt both a personal and communal celebration. I can’t tell you what each of those elders was thinking. Nor what they are thinking now one day into being crones. I don’t know but I do trust each journey will be luminous and ever widening the circle.
You see, I am one of those seven women.
