The Future of Interfaith

By Drea Parker

I recently attended an international interfaith conference, the annual conference of the North American Interfaith Network (NAIN). A question put to the audience by the facilitator during one of the breakout sessions was, “What do you see or want to see as the future for interfaith?” Those of us present mentioned several . . . → Read More: The Future of Interfaith

On Vows, Fierce Love, and Trust

By Beth Lynch

On Walpurgisnacht, May Day Eve, the special ceremony I had been planning for nearly two months, and thinking about for years, took place: Odin and I renewed our Marriage vows.

I had been thinking about doing something like this for years because when I initially married Him in December 2002, it was . . . → Read More: On Vows, Fierce Love, and Trust

This…is a blog post.

By Sunna Blalock

This…is a blog post.

It is a collection of words shaped by pixels on a screen composed of a mixture of lead, mercury, phosphorus, metal semiconductors, gallium arsenide, and polarized crystal-coated glass in varying quantity based on whether you have an LED or LCD screen.

It is easily ignored by simply clicking . . . → Read More: This…is a blog post.

Turnabout is (Relatively) Fair Play

By Galina Krasskova

[Snip] Several people [have] repeatedly protested that my work makes their lives difficult, it creates problems for them most especially when someone looks up their religion online, finds me (and my colleagues) and then assumes that they practice similarly. Ostensibly then, they’re forced to explain that no, this isn’t what they do . . . → Read More: Turnabout is (Relatively) Fair Play

Cultural Quandaries: Animals

By Rua Lupa

From reading the word ‘animals’ what is the first thing that comes to mind? Think on that a bit before reading on….

In Anishinabek (Ojibwe) tradition individuals are part of a clan. These clans determine your role in the community and often your character. Your clan is usually inherited, if not it . . . → Read More: Cultural Quandaries: Animals

My Story, and How to Have a Voice

By Beth Lynch

Back when I first married Odin, I did so solely because I was in love and wanted to be loved by Him. I wanted to be His wife, His helpmeet, His home, to make a home for Him in my heart and in my immediate surroundings (wherever those might be). I wanted . . . → Read More: My Story, and How to Have a Voice

The Endangered Occultist

By Christopher Penczak

When I first got interested in all the topics that would eventually lead me to my spiritual path, they were neatly shelved under the “Occult” section of the library or local book store at the mall. Thankfully, by the time I really got involved, there were a few more “how to” manuals . . . → Read More: The Endangered Occultist

Interfaith Family Ties Blossom from Ostara to Easter

By Kathy Nance

I have an Easter dress.

This is the first time since high school I’ve chosen one.

I’ve visited Christian churches for special occasions. But I’m a visitor only. I get restless as a toddler sitting through the long sermons on uncomfortable pews. The hymns don’t speak to me any more than does . . . → Read More: Interfaith Family Ties Blossom from Ostara to Easter

The Questions that Led Me to Neopaganism

By John Halstead

When I left the Mormon church, I felt a strong need to justify myself. A Mormon can request to have their name removed from the church records by putting the request in writing. You don’t have to state your reason, but I wanted to, so I wrote a lengthy letter (10 pages) . . . → Read More: The Questions that Led Me to Neopaganism

Why Initiation Made Me Love Solitary Wicca

by Star Foster

<snip>

Even if my initiation wasn’t oathbound, I still really couldn’t tell you about it. Some human experiences can’t be effectively communicated. I’d imagine giving birth or losing a loved one to a wasting disease are good examples of those kinds of experiences. You can talk about them all you want, but . . . → Read More: Why Initiation Made Me Love Solitary Wicca
