“Leap Of Faith” Mini-Psychic FairFebruary 28th and 29th

Sunset Spiritualist Church is hosting its first Leap of Faith Psychic Fair fund-raiser. This event is Saturday, February 28th and Sunday February 29th. Proceeds from this fund-raiser will go to the church’s building fund.

Saturday’s activities will start at 10:00 with readers and body workers available for 20 minute sessions. At 1:30 Jim Haynes, Wichita, Kansas, will offer a free class, “Techniques for Creative Meditation”. A free-will donation Soup Supper will start at 5:30 and the evening will close with a 7:30 drumming circle. Sunday the workers will be available for readings from 1:00 to 5:00.

Also available is a bookstore with “pre-owned” books and other items. Area vendors will also offer a variety of merchandise such as jewelry, crystals, stones and other items as well. The snack bar will be open featuring our famous burgers and homemade pie.

“Many of the buildings we have on the grounds come from the original camp site in Delphos, Kansas” says Daya Sei’lgre Martin, Board President. “Some of these buildings need to be replaced and others need major repair. The money raised from this fund-raiser will help us with these building projects.”

The Origin of Valentines Day- There are many opinions as to the origin of Valentine’s Day. Some experts state that it originated from St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D., the same day that had been devoted to love lotteries. In 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius set aside February 14 to honor St. Valentine.

Gradually, February 14 became the date for exchanging love messages and St. Valentine became the patron saint of lovers. The date was marked by sending poems and simple gifts such as flowers. There was often a social gathering or a ball.

In the US, Miss Esther Howland is given credit for sending the first valentine cards. Commercial valentines were introduced in the 1800s. Valentines Day began in the time of the Roman Empire. In ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honor Juno, the Queen of the Roman Gods and Goddesses and of women and marriage. February 15th, began the Feast of Lupercalia.

   The pastors of the early Christian Church in Rome trying to do away with the pagan element in these feasts by substituting the names of saints for those of maidens. Lupercalia began about the middle of February, the pastors appear to have chosen Saint Valentine’s Day for the celebration of this new feast. So it seems started the custom of young men choosing maidens for valentines, or saints as patrons for the coming year.
