Consider the Dwarves

For those of you with too much interest in Lord of the Rings, perhaps you should consider switching to Ásatrú (where you can worship Norse Æsir and Vanir) as your religion of choice. Radical Religion in America has some sound advice should you pursue this change of deities:
"A primary goal of ritual, of course, is to remagicalize the world. James Chisholm offers an unexcelled example of this in his utilization of the Lay of Alvis as source text for a series of blessings (worship rituals) and workings (magical acts) centered on the dwarves, whose aid can be secured in various tasks and whose happiness and good will one would want to assure in any case." (76).
