Deity: Both Young and Ancient


Deity is continually being discovered, rediscovered, or created. I don’t think there are limits to the divine, or how you as a Pagan worship that divine. The gods cast their spell on me long ago. For those wishing to get caught up in their siren song, I hope they do the same to you. [Read more...]

Links and Stuff (and Cats!)


Need a little extra reading this weekend? We’ve got you covered with links to great articles on the Jesus/Pagan conundrum, polyamory, stone age penises, and lots of other stuff. Oh, and there will be pictures of my cats. How can you beat that? [Read more...]

Why I am a Pagan


Patheos is currently running a “blogger challenge” asking their diverse stable of writers to reflect on “Why They are What They Are” in 200 words or less. This is my little contribution. [Read more...]

Deity Calls, We Listen (Just Like Ancient Pagans)


There’s a natural tendency to think of the gods as old, perhaps even as eternal and changeless, but the worship of deity has always been one of evolution. Gods rise, gods fall, gods are created, and gods are recreated.

Hot-Cross Buns (A Recipe, Yes a Recipe)

I bake but once a year, and it’s always in the Spring. Hot-cross buns are a traditional Spring time goodie, perfect for cakes and ale, and celebrating the Equinox (or even Beltane!). [Read more...]

Jesus and Pagans: A Tired and Divisive Debate


I’m a Pagan, and there are no obstacles between myself and the divine. How I encounter that divine is my journey, and yours as well. If someone wants to worship Jesus in a Pagan context that’s certainly their right, just as it’s your right to not do so. [Read more...]

Pagans of the Books

While Pagans have never been a people “of the book” they’ve long been a people “of the books.” The printed page has served as inspiration in Modern Paganism and the Western Magickal Tradition, and even as media evolves, will continue to do so. [Read more...]

Pope Watch 2013


The Catholic Church has done a lot of wrong over the past 1700 years (attention journalists, it’s not a 2000 year old institution), but instead of just assuming the worst I’m going to wish for the best. [Read more...]

Eostre, Easter, Ostara, Eggs, and Bunnies


I kind of celebrate Easter. If you grew up with Easter egg hunts, baskets full of jelly beans, and huge ham dinners it’s hard to leave all of that behind. Much like Christmas, the trappings of the Easter Holiday aren’t Biblical, they are a hodgepodge of Christian, pagan, culture, and circumstance. [Read more...]
