Pagan News and Views Since 1998
Greetings All,Most of us are familiar with the "Charge of the Goddess", but rarely does anyone mention a "Charge of the God". There are a couple of versions out there; I don't know, maybe it's just…Continue
Preface: I work as a nurse in a newly constructed, military hospital on Ft. Belvoir, Va. I have worked as a DoD civilian for almost 13 years and was an active duty service member for 15 years prior…Continue
MM Everyone,Recently, I was informed by a rather concerned Christian that I needed to pray in order to cultivate a relationship with God, so that He could show me the way. When I replied that I do…Continue
