Church of Azazel - our five rising gods of the modern West

Recently, the NYC Church of Azazel proto-congregation held our biggest open meeting yet. A total of twelve people attended. The topic was "Lilith" and our plans to launch both our own Order of Lilith (for Church of Azazel members) and a separate, larger, allied spiritual group (for polytheists and occultists of all paths) devoted to Lilith.

Lilith is one of our five Rising Gods of the modern West: Lilith, Prometheus, Ishtar, Pan, and Lucifer-of-Sophia. Over the next several years, we plan to build both (1) internal orders devoted to each of the five rising gods and (2) associated separate larger allied spiritual groups which will aim to bring together people from a variety of polytheistic and occult paths.

I'm also in process of putting together collections of information about the five rising gods. Here are the beginnings of these collections: This will take a while, since I have lots of other things I need to do. In the meantime, it anyone wants to help out with this, I would very much appreciate it.

I would also appreciate comments on my page about Rising Gods of the modern West. If you're a member of Meetup, you may comment in the relevant thread on our message board. Otherwise, feel free to post a comment here on this blog.
