AskAngus9: Sacrifices were made…..

Everybody had a job, from holding the bird, to plucking feathers, to chasing down the chicken after the deed had been done. Much work followed, and that night they served – and raised a toast to – Henrietta. [Read more…]

AskAngus: Why I am a Pagan (in EXACTLY 200 words)

The challenge from Patheos: Explain your faith in 200 words or less. Well, first off, it’s not a Faith; it’s a Practice……but, Challenge: Accepted! Except, these words here don’t count towards the total. This is just the prologue; the explanation; the set-up. The real words, the countdown clock – the deadline! Start…..right……now: [Read more…]

AskAngus8: Red State, Blue State, where can I congregate?

AskAngus4: I have a Dream, about Jesus on a UFO

Ooh! New term alert! I honestly had never heard of the term “Witch Dream” before. But that’s not too surprising. I rarely make any distinction between my religious life and my mundane life. To me “Witch Dream” is a redundant phrase. Every dream I have is a Witch Dream, just like every hike I take is a Pagan Hike, and every corn fritter I eat is the Holy Eucharist. [Read more…]
