Protection

Four of Stones

A newborn fawn shelters beneath a dolmen as the midsummer dawn rises, bringing hope and renewed vitality to the vulnerable. Shelter and protection for the weak or the spiritually wounded is the responsibility of us all.

Nurturing parental care. A roof over one’s head. A period of stability. Time to foster your tender heart.

Amendment III

The government of the people shall be expressly secular. Congress will make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; nor shall any individual, religious or quasi-religious entity or collective engage or seek to influence the course of legislation or policy in accordance with theological creed.
