Joining ASTARIA and ZDK is not hard nor difficult. However, there are a few steps and some requirements that you need to understand. So, take a few moments and get a good look. Be sure that you understand what we are saying, here.
Well, it is not complex!
But, we do have 3 main general requirements:
1. VARANGIAN PLEDGE:
In keeping with the Mediavel flavor and atmosphere of Our Realm, we have set forth the minimum requirements that you will be able to make and keep the Varangian Pledge. If you are unsure of what all is involved here, then follow the link below, where it will be detailed for you.
2. NOAHIC RULES:
To be acceptable for entering Membership with Our (Spiritual) Realm, you will be required to meet the minimum standards as set forth in Our Traditional Noahic Rules of Fellowship. If you are unsure as to what all is involved here, then follow the link below, that will give you an Article explaining it all (*** PG ***).
3. KEEPING COMMANDMENTS:
To maintain your Membership (as well as fulfill your Pledge, above), you will be required to uphold and observe the 10 Commandments, as set forth in the Holy Scriptures (and as taught and interpreted by Our Realm). If you are unsure about what God's Commandments (and Laws) are, then follow the link below to Our Law Library, where it will be laid out for you in great detail.
However, if you happen to have the abilities and qualifications to help head up some kind of Youth Program, we would like to hear from you!
TO E-MAIL US (Click Here)!
1. PUT MEMBERSHIP IN SUBJECT BOX, FIRST:
As for the time being, we are all using the same e-mail channel, be sure that you indicate that is is Our Membership Department that you are trying to reach by typing MEMBERSHIP into the e-mail subject box.
2. LIST DEPARTMENT OR BRANCH AT END OF SUBJECT BOX:
If you are seeking membership with just one of Our Programs (such as NORDESEL, EMUSPATEL, APPIRU, KoReY, etc.), be sure to indicate that by putting the Branch Name, after MEMBERSHIP. If you are seeking general ZDK Membership, then put ASTARIA, instead (or if you are seeking religious leader status with us, put ZDK).
3. MAKE PLEDGE:
To show that you will make the Varangian Pledge, type in the first line of the message box (not the subject box) as: I AGREE TO THE VARANGIAN PLEDGE. (Then, skip a line.)
4. CERTIFY ACCEPTABILITY:
To show that you are curently meeting the minimum standards, type in the second line as: I CERTIFY THAT I CURRENTLY MEET THE NOAHIC RULES OF FELLOWSHIP. (Then, skip another line.)
5. PROMISE OBSERVANCE:
To show that you are willing to live by the Laws of Our Realm (God's Laws), type in the third line as: I PROMISE TO UPHOLD AND KEEP THE 10 COMMANDMENTS. (Then, skip another line.)
6. IDENTIFY YOURSELF AT THE END OF YOUR APPLICATION:
Anonymous applications will not be read and will simply be deleted. So, if you want serious consideration, be sure to sign your real name to your application. (Net pseudonyms or handles should also indicate your full, legal name.)
7. GIVE YOUR FULL RETURN ADDRESS:
If you expect acceptance, then be sure to give your full mailing address and telephone number--after your name (above). These address listing will NOT be given out nor sold to outside sources. But, they will be used by ZDK staff and Members to help contact you and get you more involved with ZDK Programs and Activities. NOTE: as some browsers do not automatically list your e-mail, please be sure to give that, below your address! (Also, if you happen to have a Web Site of your own, please list that as well, after your e-mail.)
8. BE SURE TO SEND IN A DONATION!
Didn't you read the info under DUES? Be sure you did! (Next to the Cloud Castle, above.)
Hey, that isn't hard! So, get busy. And get it done, today.
