Hello, thought I'd introduce myself
« on: January 08, 2011, 03:35:30 AM »

Hello everyone. I've been lurking for the last few days, so thought I'd introduce myself.

I was raised Christian, Pentecost to be exact, but have not "practiced" for about 27 years. I've gone back a couple of times, but never stayed. There were just so many rules to follow, that I really didn't understand why it had to be that way. If God made everything, we do you HAVE to worship in a church? If God was a loving God, then why where illegitimate children (plus 10 generations) condemned to Hell? All of this plus a lot of other stuff never really set well with me, so when I was old enough, I left.

I went through the next 27 years just living my life, getting married, having kids and recently a grandchild. I've always felt there was something more out there, so I started searching. I never thought of looking at the Pagan side since it has been ingrained into me that Paganism is of the devil. The more I have read over the past few months, the more I understand that the Pagan way seems to fit me better. Which path I will travel has yet to be decided. For now, I'm looking into the Wicca (Wiccan?) way, but I am open to any of the paths.

I have just purchased "Wicca: a guide for the solitary practitioner," By Scott Cunningham. I thought I'd start with that book, then go from there.

I have a ton of questions, but for now I will lurk, read and learn.

Don't lurk.  Participate.

You'll get far more out of your time here that way.

Welcome aboard.

Yes, I have some to spare.
