Mankind has searched for their place in their community, world, and universe.
Religion is a way of finding our true nature and our relationship with life. Finding that the modern faiths of the world lacked what we needed.
We looked back to our ancestors and to the religion that they practiced.
Our name for it is Ásatrú.
Ásatrú is an old Norse word which means Troth (loyalty) to the Gods, and modern Ásatrú is nothing less than the complete revival of the ancient Norse Pagan religion.
Ásatrú recognizes many familiar Gods and Goddesses.
Thor is the Thunderer, the wielder of the divine Hammer Mjolnir. The thunder is the sound of his chariot, the rain his gift that allows the crops to prosper.
Odin, the All father, is the God who gifted mankind with a divine nature. He is the One-eyed God, who traded his eye for wisdom, and hung on the world tree to learn the mysteries of magic and the runes. Odin receives slain warriors in his hall, where they prepare for the final battle of Ragnarök.
Frey is a God of peace and plenty who is King of the Elves and brings fertility and prosperity to the land.
But a religion without Goddesses is halfway to atheism.
Freya, who wears the sacred necklace Brisingamen and rides in her cat drawn chariot. She is the Goddess of love and beauty, but she is also a fierce Goddess of battle and takes half the battle-slain to her.
Frigg is Odin’s wife, and she shares in his leadership of the Gods. She is the only other deity allowed to sit in Odin’s Seat from which she can see all of the Nine Worlds, and is the patron of the household and of married women.
Skadi is a Goddess of strong independence and a patron of hunting and of skiing.
We of the Ásatrú believe that the goal of living is to lead a worthwhile and useful life.
Our values are based on individual liberty, tempered with responsibility, as outlined in the Nine Noble Virtues: Courage, Truth, Honor, Fidelity, Discipline, Hospitality, Industriousness, Self-Reliance, and Perseverance.
No individual can stand alone without kinsmen and we believe strongly in the power and importance of the family. A strong religious community is also very important to us and we gather into groups, known as kindreds, to worship our Gods.
While we do not believe any religion is for everyone, the Ásatrú welcome anyone to our faith who is sincerely interested in pursuing the old ways. Ásatrú Utah does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender or sexual orientation.
