The Role of the Church
A Friend of the Fields is often called upon to bless the land several times during the year. First when the crops are planted, to assure a good season, then again at the beginning and end of the harvest, to thank the Raiser for letting the crops grow and to protect the harvest from vermin in storage. Priests praise healthy work and teach farmers on proper cropping practices and advanced techniques such as irrigation. Alcolytes often serve their apprenticeships as field hands on temple lands, or travel with a priest to a distant village to help dig water ditches or raise a barn.

Home is where the hearth is
May you have a long life and fruitful seed
We reap what we sow
May the seed of your loin be fruitful in the belly of your woman
One should be like the land and enjoy growth
There is always room for one more
Children are cheaper by the dozen
