Week One: Discovering Paganism

Day One:

I came to learn about Paganism many years ago when I was just a teenager.  It was a belief system that called to me more than any other religion every could.  The very first book I ever read on the subject was Raymond Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft.  It was the beginning of a very long journey for me.

When I was 24, my kids were born and I decided that the structure of a church would be the best for raising them.  So, we began attending St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church near where I lived at the time.  It was good to have the community, but changes in the church dynamic started to turn me off and I no longer had the since of “home” that it once provided me.

So, for a time, I was wandering lost.  I still attempted to hold onto to the Christian faith, but it slowly became more of a chore than a true since of faith.

Recently, my daughter discovered paganism for herself.  While helping her discover her belief, I once again found my place in the pagan world.  I am glad to have rediscovered this faith and look forward to everyday that I discover something new.
