An Update: Restatement of Purpose

As we have been gifted by the following of more people, for which we thank all of you, it has been brought to my attention that there was some misinformation in one of the articles posted. I screwed up by using terminology that I myself was wrong about, and I myself was misinformed concerning. I had wrote, where I had given short definitions of basic concepts related to Heathenry, incorrectly, on the definition of Wyrd, for one, and also orlæg. The fault is mine (Ceadda) and mine alone. I also used a word (scyld) incorrectly, as the use of the word changed from Old to Middle English to mean different things. That was also solely my fault. I have corrected all of this in the article in question, and hope those corrections are satisfactory.

Now, with that out of the way, allow me to explain that Þunresfolc Heorþ is not intended to be an academic site. It is not another version of other sites with an academic focus, because the focus is not on academics. However, that does not give me an excuse to put out misinformation. Unintentional or not. I make no claims that I always employ Reconstructionist methodology, because I do not always do so. Often, yes, but not always. However, worldview terminologies must, or at least really should be accurately used when discussed. I apologize for any confusion I may have caused.

Furthermore, if and when I get something like that wrong, by all means, call me out on it. I am not perfect, infalliable, or anything of the kind. Sometimes I misread something. Sometimes I forget something I had read in the past, as was the case with the past article I wrote. Sometimes I fail to update myself on more current understandings of things in a timely manner. Sometimes I use the wrong Old English word for something. Sometimes I quote something I remember nearly verbatim accidentally. (I have no interest in stealing anyone’s work, so if I do that, again, please correct me.) You get the idea. I am no expert on the Old English language. I learn in bits and pieces as it comes to me, like many others.

The purpose of this site is to open dialogue, and share our experiences as we grow in our understanding of the world around us with respect to our hearth cult. So, though I am not an academic authority by any means, I welcome corrections, and opinions. I am happy to clear up confusions and misunderstandings. I hope to inspire, but I also hope to be inspired. I like to share knowledge, but in a different way. If one prefers to hear things in a strictly academic format, like reading out of a textbook, and sometimes I do myself, then you will not get much use of reading anything I write. I like to share what I know. I also like to learn from others. So, again, if you have any questions, critiques, suggestions on improvements, or wish for clarification, or simply to share ideas… Feel free to comment in the “Comments” section, or visit our Facebook page. Also, we can be reached directly at our email address.

I want to thank all of you for engaging with us. I hope to engage more now, and in the future. Thanks again!
