Random Pagan Verse:
Let each High Priest and High Priestess govern their coven with justice and love,
with the help and advice of the other and of the elders of the coven, always heeding the advice of
the Messenger of the Gods if he should arrive. They will heed all the suggestions of their coveners
and strive to settle any differences among them.
