Date: Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 8:03 PMThe Live Oak Local Council (www.LiveOakCoG.org) of the Covenant of the Goddess (www.CoG.org) is the organization within the Covenant of the Goddess responsible for CoG activities in central and south Texas. In addition to our own programs and activities, such as open public rituals, Live Oak is a full and active member of Austin Area Interreligious Ministries (www.AAIMAustin.org), Austin's interfaith community.Because of our membership in AAIM, we are in a unique position not just to tell, but to show, the greater Austin religious community that Wiccans and other Pagans are also people of faith. Our participation in AAIM programs and activities has made a real difference in the perception of Wiccans and Pagans by the Austin faith community. We have an active public information program, and our Public Information Officer is available to make presentations to any group, Pagan or otherwise.Because of the national CoG bylaws, we can only accept Witches and Wiccans as full members in the local council; but Live Oak welcomes people from all Pagan paths to all our events. Our regular business meetings are open, and any Pagan in our service area is welcome to attend and participate in our consensus process.
