I have done some congregational leadership work and know how angry many of the others may get if I just go ahead and do it without contacting the central office. Besides, it will probably go better with the support of the central office staff or the top of the hierarchy and all that.

In fact, it was another of the woman who gently suggested that since I'm an Ovate and there's only Druid so far that she knows of here in Germany maybe I could just start a seed group. I don't mind it - I'm okay with both following and leading but it helps if I know which it is that people are expecting me to do, because if I don't take the lead when someone needs me to that's a let down and if I try to and they don't want it, then they might not like it.

Just for the record -- I don't have the numbers, but I believe there's at least a handful of druid grade members in the german-speaking countries, and a larger handful of ovates. Most live far apart, but clusters are beginning to form, and there are a few seed groups already. Whenever someone tells you there's only one of something, chances are that their information is outdated

It's maybe different over in America, where you are used to travel quite some distances for everything - in Germany there will be no chances for a seed group if the members would have to travel more than 50 - 80 kilometres. (Erm, no, it's not about the german road system - but we are so used to having everything nearby that people probably won't see the point...)
