I do agree with you both Draggy and Linxxus. it is very much important for the Priest and Priestess to communicate and to make all decisions together..and it is very Important for the Priest and Priestess to have and open mind and have good communication skills with not only with each other but the council members and the Coven Members as well. To make a coven Thrive and Survive it takes all the members working and striving together as a family.
And thats why I love our Clan, yes we get some of the weirdest looks from other Covens. But you know what we don't have most of the issues that other Covens seem to run into on SOM, and in their off sites. Disrespect, arguing, lack of interest, lack of posting? Nope not us, and even better it has become a support system for many. I am just glad that so many can understand what the term Clan or Coven actually means..family. If you treat each other as family, one built on unconditional love and understanding; you will find your Clan or Coven thriving in no time. ;)

That is very good thread indeed .I do suspect that many councils members and new priest or priestess have no cue how to run their covens and sometimes even members do not know what are their duties and tasks .Therefore that thread is written enough simple and very effective at same time to give some guidelines for all groups involved into coven structure .But indeed the good coven is that one into which all members work as family and support each other in very different matters and issues .I would say that you two did really good work to explain that .But again to my opinion you both (Draggy and Lin )
have good understanding and are good leaders .Which naturally makes your coven good one .And i will add as well that you two are perfect match ;)Blessed be both and thank you for your effort to help and improve other covens too .
I got totally lost in the forums (out of boredom) and found this. It's old, kind of rough, and all the original posters look long gone, but I think it ends up being a beautiful basis for running an online coven. I found another one of these so I'm going to copy this message over to there as well.
I hope it serves to assist all of ouir current and future priests and priestesses.
