Welcome to the Holy Nation of Odin online Outreach ministry. We hope to engage our families, friends and folk with content that leads to learning and enjoying the Faith of the Gods and Goddesses (Gođanum) of our Ancestors… Our Gođanum!

Heil Odin!!!

No better burden can a man carry on the road
than a store of common sense;
better than riches it will seem in an unfamiliar place,
such is the resort of the wretched.
stanza 10

He’s a wretched man, of an evil disposition,
the one who makes fun of everything;
he doesn’t know the one thing he ought to know;
that he himself is not devoid of faults.
stanza 22

To his friend a man should be a friend
and to his friend’s friend too;
but a friend no man should be
to the friend of his enemy.
stanza 43
