Two Stories in Collision

 I

Craig's mom was up from Texas to see the new house. She'd heard about the pagan guy that lived with her son, but you could tell that, being a good Episcopalian woman, she was working hard to reserve judgment.

One afternoon, while I was off at work, the doorbell rings. Naturally, she says: "I'll get it."

She opens the door. The man standing there is holding the dripping, severed head of a deer.

"Hi," he says, "Is Steve at home?"

Nine Jars of Compassion: A Folk-tale of the Latter-Day Dobunni

They say that He of the Horns looked upon his people and his heart was moved with compassion at their suffering.

For an age and an age, two ages, he wept, and the tears of his weeping filled nine jars.

And when his weeping was ended, he took these nine jars and, with their waters, extinguished the fires of Hell.

PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wednesday Oct 8

Today's Watery Wednesday focuses on community news for Pagans, Heathens, polytheists, pantheists and all our allies! North Carolina Pagans in the spotlight; Pagan interfaith progress; a new book on devotional polytheism; real vs "fake" names on Facebook.

It's October, the season when mainstream culture focuses on Paganism. This week, the Tarheel state seems to be in the focus. Kelley Harrell describes contemporary Witchcraft in this piece at a Raleigh website. The Asheville Citizen-Times highlights an unique program that includes Witches (like H Byron Ballard) in a program that shares various religions in a once-a-year program to local high school students.

PaganNewsBeagle Faithful Friday Sept 5

Its Faithful Friday here at the Beagle, and we have stories of faith from all religions. Interfaith work, an Indian temple, Jews & Arabs as neighbors, rewilding Paganism and everything you didn't want to know (but should) about "Islamic State."

Is interfaith work -- between Pagans and non-Pagans -- important work or just a distraction? Ryn Fox at the Wild Hunt discusses the issues.

PaganNewsBeagle Faith-Filled Friday

Happy Faith-Filled Friday -- and 4th of July!
Today we are concentrating on stories of how faith -- Pagan and otherwise -- influences our daily life. 

How should "sincerely held religious belief" influence the law? HuffPo religious editor argues against the recent SCOTUS decisions.

Is Paganism in a critical phase of defining itself? John Beckett compares today's Pagan battles to the deliberations of 3rd century CE Christianity and points out that "s/he who shows up, wins."
