Druidry and Christianity: The Perfect Combination

Druidry resonated with me even before I knew what it was. I’ve always loved visiting stone circles, for example. You would never have found me clamouring to go to Disneyland as a child – I was happiest among the stone rows of Carnac or soaking up the energies at Castlerigg, for example.
