Traveling

I’ll be off-line for the next week and a half.  Didn’t want anyone to think I’d been raptured when I didn’t show up after Saturday.  Although, under the doctrine taught at the church where I grew up, I would.  Assuming, of course, that I was ever “saved” in the first place, which I was never sure about, which made me terrified of the Rapture…

Which is one of the many reasons why I’m a Druid, a Pagan, and a Unitarian Universalist and not a Christian.

I want to be clear, though – I hold no animosity toward Jesus or his sincere followers.  He and I had a long conversation before my Dedication and Covenant (Denton CUUPS’ optional-but-awesome initiation).  While I could in good conscience be a UU Christian or a member of the United Church of Christ or even of a liberal congregation in a mainline denomination, that’s not where my passion lies.  I have grown more and have done more good as an enthusiastic Pagan than I ever could as a reluctant Christian.

See you around Memorial Day…

About John Beckett

I grew up in Tennessee with the woods right outside my back door. Wandering through them gave me a sense of connection to Nature and to a certain Forest God. I’m a Druid graduate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, the Coordinating Officer of the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans and a former Vice President of CUUPS Continental. I’ve been writing, speaking, teaching, and leading public rituals for the past eleven years. I live in the Dallas – Fort Worth area and I earn my keep as an engineer.
