Dragon Oak Temple
is looking at helping individuals to become self empowered.
To help teach each person about themselves
and the world around them, and to connect with their faith
Most of us are Pagan yet we are not path specific.
This is a Temple, a dwelling place of the Gods.
This is not a working coven.
Our goal is to help each individual understand themselves
and to grow closer to the Gods around them
on which ever level they connect.
To help them grow in faith and understand
the influence they can be to the community at whole.
All paths are welcomed for we are not here to judge
each other, but to learn from all the different
possibilities that exist in this world today
and tomorrow with out feeling judged.
We strive to become a strong, united community
even while beliefs, practices and personalities may differ.
Differences should be embraced not feared.
A study of other religions will lead to an understanding of religious diversity.
With this knowledge, then one can truly understand their own belief and
keep it in their mind and heart.
Having tolerance toward another religion
does not require you to endorse that faith group's beliefs,
it simply indicates your respect for its right to exist and
for its members to hold different beliefs without being oppressed.
With religious tolerance, we mean that everyone,
Christians, Jews, Muslims, Wiccans, Pagans, and others,
should be able to follow their own
religious beliefs and practices freely.
Religious freedom means that you can without oppression,
believe, worship and witness
(or practice freedom from belief, worship and witness),
as you wish.
Change your beliefs or your religion at any time,
and/or associate with others to express your beliefs,
and explain them to others.
The pentagram represents an ancient concept that can be found in philosophical thought in both East and West. Although over 8,000 years old, the image of the pentagram is applicable in our modern world. The pentagram tells us that we have the ability to bring Divinity to Earth; this applies to every area of practical day-to-day living, as well as spiritual thought. The ability of bringing Divinity to Earth is what makes us whole.
