Yeah, my church is pretty open and liberal. They don't care what you wear. I know what you mean, Phyllis about the Southern Baptist thing. Do I ever. I've had my own bad experiences with that. I don't disrespect anyone's religion or faith. But I don't like it when they get preachy or pushy. I turn away immediately. I think a lot of the customs of the Orthodox church come from old European customs. We had people who attend who are from different countries who dress differently and seem more "old fashioned" I guess is the term. So maybe that's why that priest told Stephanie to come back dressed differently. They wouldn't do that at my church. I've been to all kinds of churches, even the southern ones who handle the snakes. That was kind of freaky, LOL.

Love to read what you have all written and hope you go through with the book idea. Count me in if you do. Maybe I could share my Aurora Borealis story with you all. It is truly magical. Is the Tom Hodgkinson quote from a book? I love it and would like to read more.

Just flew in from Illinois...I'm not a witch, but I'm an eco-spiritualist with strong connections to the Catholic Church. What does that make me? I'm the kind of person who'll bless a tree with Holy Water and then skip mass so I can go for a walk in the park. OK, I'm a leettle bit weird. It's nice to know that there are some good pagans out there cause I had a very bad experience with one. Have had bad experiences with the Catholic Church as well--yet I keep looking for the good in both. My mission is to live softly on the Earth and make people aware that yes, the Earth is alive--and if we humans abuse it, God (or the Goddess if you please) will give it the power to seek revenge. I'm not sure what that makes me--a new age Christian? Or a Catholic pagan?
Who knows? Just know that I love this forum and enjoy reading what ya'll have to say. Don't plan on ever becoming a witch, but it's neat that we can all do our thing and be respectful of each other. Happy May Day

Merry Beltane everyone :D

Hi Prariehawk :)I don't see anything weird about blessing trees and skipping mass.
I am a loosely defined Pagan, myself. :D

What did you fly in on??? LOL

peace

Happy Beltane!!

Cindy, we all practice what is right for us, and I totally appreciate your beliefs! I don't subscribe to any one doctrine, and I'm just happy you've found something that makes you happy. :)

Cindy, maybe a Christian with Pagan tendencies??? A Pagan with Christian tendencies?? Heck, who needs a title??? Many of us have a varied belief system, I think you will fit right in here. glad you stopped by.

kristin, love the screen name!!! I would also love to hear your aurora borealis story!! I hope to see the aurora some day.

Hope you all have a wonderful day. blessings Phyllis

Cindy, I'd call you a Catholic witch! For a long time that is how I identified. I think it is entirely feasable to be both, ESPECIALLY in the Catholic Church!

There is still a swap....I'll give it till Monday for sign up and then assign partners! YAY!

Blessed Beltane? Is that Pagan for May Day? Nice picture of the Goddess and God--I've never met a Catholic witch but I know a few priests who are into the eco-spiritualist movement. That's how I got into it--by attending some retreats. I guess you could say I was spirited away.
Besides, I live alone, with my animals, so if I had lived in earlier times,I'd probably be considered a witch. Maybe i do have pagan tendencies...I've always been able to sense what animals are feeling, so maybe I have the makings of an animal shaman. Animals "tell" me things, like if they're scared, if I'm invading their territory, etc. I used to think that everyone was like that but now I know better.
Actually, I think it's all a part of being human. And I prefer humans who are in touch with the natural world. That's why i love MJF.
What's the swap about?

Please put me down for the witch way farmgirl chapter. I would love to do the broom thing but am just to bogged down with training a new horse and making new curtains to get it done and I don't want to disappoint. I would be down for one later in the year though if there is ever another one. And since the word Pagan actually means "country dweller" I guess that any farmgirl that wants to can call herself one.
Here is wishing all of you a very Blessed Beltane.
Blessings
Beth


May the force of the Horse be with you.

Ok, so I'm putting together a Maiden Lodge/ Moon Circle for my daughter and a friend. I have 12 months mapped out and can't decide whether I should set up a blog just for this project. Both of these girls are private, solitary girls and I was thinking that having a place they (and others) can go to check in with each other and me and to post ideas might be good. What do ya think? Sometimes I overthink things and get bogged down in the details!

Dana, that is a fantastic idea! I have small girls and often wonder how to intergrate more "goddess power" into their lives. I am very interested.
Tasha, I look forward to hearing about the swap.
Hey ~ does anyone know the differance between Beltane and Lunar Beltane?

Best,
H
