Christine Kraemer, the managing editor here at Patheos Pagan has put out an invitation for Pagan bloggers and blog commenters to find a way to communicate face-to-face:
“During the month of February, if you write online, make a date to have a cup of tea (or food or drink of your choice) with another writer or commenter. Even better, be daring, and make it someone you’ve argued with… I invite you to take a risk: e-mail someone (or more than one!) whose voice you’ve never heard before and ask them for an hour of their time via video chat (or failing that, phone). Get a glimpse of their pets or babies or partners. Show off your altar or your book collection or the way the sunlight slants into your kitchen. Put away your debates for a while and take the time to talk. Debates can come later.”
I’d love to have tea with you, even if our tea cups are thousands of miles away from each other. Make mine a hot chai with plenty of spice and plenty of milk. And I would definitely love for you to show off your baby to me! Molly, who’s been a regular contributor here for a full year, is also making herself available for Pagan Tea Time. Leave a comment here or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s have tea.
