It is with deep sadness that I report the passing of Ar nDraiocht Fein's founder, Rev. Isaac Bonewits after fighting a courageous battle against an illnees that finally took him.

ADF has made a request of its members that a rememberance candle be lit for Isaac on the night of August 19th at 9:00 PM to honor and assist in his passing to Tir Na Nog. I would request that the community join with me at 9:00 PM in whatever time zone you happen to be in, on the 19th in offering prayers for his passage and to also lend strength and healing for his family as well as those greiving at ADF. I will be performing a crossing ritual in memory of Isaac at that time.

Besides founding ADF, Rev. Bonewits was a writer, penning many books and booklets on Druidism today and in the past.

He ws a mentor, friend and learned person that could be counted on for guidance, spiritual uplifting and a sounding board. Though I did not have the pleasure of knowing him personally, I felt and still feel his influence on my practices daily. He will be sorely missed.

If I could ask the community as a whole to light the rememberance candle for Isaac, I believe we can give him a world wide assist in crossing and also lifting up his family at this sorrowful time.

ADF has a guest book set up for you to lend your well wishes to the family and the ADF community. The Address is
