Are there specific activities or things that you feel you are encouraged or even required to do for your god/dess(es)?  What happens if you don't do them?  How do you know what you're supposed to do?

For Cill members and others who have a relationship with Brighid:  Do you feel Brighid needs you/us to do specific things?  If so, what?  Are they *required* or just encouraged?

I think people are better than the gods at getting specific things done in the material world.

I do honor my gods by doing things that they like or resonate with, like researching or writing for Djehuty, and learning about architecture for Seshat.  I've done volunteer work for Brighid before, although I don't get the sense that she needs me to do this or has specifically requested it.

The one god I have had a specific request from was Wepwawet.  He basically said, "You do my work.  Wanna do it for Me?"  I've never gotten a sense of requirement about it, although I do think that if I ask for help from Him it's just polite to help Him out too.  But even that is fairly moot, because what I do for Him is what I've done at least since I got into magic.  As I currently understand it, it's my Work, and if I didn't do it, I wouldn't be fully myself.
