It varies depending upon the particular need of the community at the time. Orlanth has so many myths, after all, and they apply to a huge range of possibilities. So basically the community leaders determine what the need is, the holy folk determine which myth is most appropriate to it, and then they prepare for it and arry it out.

The community generally gains a community blessing. Personal benefits would parallel that. that is, if the community was going on the rain-getting story, then the individuals would have an opportunity to gain feats or affinities for rain-getting.
