Completed Repairs

The Troth has completed some repairs to the Forgot Password feature when logging in and has begun also to post new items to the Members Area.

Please do visit the Members Area, and we are happy to take original (or public domain) articles for sharing in the Members Area Library (Documents > Basic > Library). Please contact the Steer if you wish to contribute!

We are also seeking members with writing skills to help us to update the verbiage on our webpages.

Thank you!

What's New in The Troth?

The Troth leadership has plans to make the organization more proactive. During the last several meetings of the High Rede (Board of Directors), several new committees have been created to help to propel the organization forward.

Most of these teams are executing their duties on Facebook, where the consistent presence of most of our members makes collaboration easy. The ongoing committees will also have an email-based group within The Troth's organizational structure.

Some of the publicly-accessible groups are the following:

World Denial: Death of Delusion and PTSD

In the discussion on the Troth email list this past while I have been listening to my fellow veterans, as well as victims of rape and traumatic assault talking about the twin elements of PTSD, what happened to cause the PTSD, and what can be done to build coping mechanisms for it.  Our society is built on lies.  The communal delusions of the west in the twenty first century are in my estimation these:
 
 
 

The Story of Mistletoe

Inside the greatest stories are a hundred little stories that get forgotten.
