Imported Tables #30-33: sacred_20

It has been brought to my attention that the mod from sacred_20 deleted her journal quite some time ago without turning the comm over to someone new. Without a mod, no one can make any new claims. So, it has been requested that I import the tables to this community. I say, gladly! I like the tables from that comm very much, and it would be a shame for them to go to waste, unclaimable by anyone new.

Normally, I would contact the mod of a comm before importing their tables, but since the mod left no contact information, that isn't possible in this case. I am assuming they will not mind.

The point of these tables is prompts that have to do with religion and spirituality. That doesn't mean that your stories have to be about religion unless you want them to be. The prompts are merely supposed to be a jumping off point. Definitions have been provided for some prompts that may be difficult to define without prior religious knowledge.

When you're ready, make your claim here.
