  • How Does Paganism Reconcile Pagan Bureaucracy?

    How Does Paganism Reconcile Pagan Bureaucracy?

    I’m coming to terms with the truth about why I left the Church. It wasn’t that I had an experience of deity that fell outside of the Church’s teaching. That would come later. My experience of God was always mysterious, never concrete. I was taught that one could, if centered and open, feel a presence […]

    Looking a little closer at Pagan Leaders, Clergy, and Teachers

    An online academic journal called Hybrid Pedagogy posted a piece that I wrote about a student’s perspective on pedagogy, which for those (like me) who aren’t teachers by trade, is the method and practice of teaching.

Childlike excitement aside, this position should be filled by someone who knows that they can commit the time, and I can’t do that. I can offer my […]
