And I’d be defensive of my own practice. And I’d have to get past that if I ever wanted to function in a communal setting.

[Monday] Idea of the Week

The issue of publishing within Paganism is a huge one. One that other writers more involved with it can probably cover better than me. I can only address it as an outsider, a consumer, a reader of these books. I can only comment on what I see.

[Monday] Idea of the Week

Confidence is not something inherent. Confident people are not always confident. Confidence involves both skill, repetition, and performance. Acting confident *can* help us become confident.

[Wednesday] Technology Spirits

Small flowers.

Technology is complicated. It can act as oppressor and resistance, often at the same time.

[Monday] Idea of the Week

Small flowers.

So, for this week, I want to suggest people contemplate what it means to *perform religion*. What does it mean to act religiously?

One thing I’ve noticed is that we have yet another Friday the 13th this month. I’m considering what role that date can have in the faith.

[Monday] Updates & Links

Small flowers.

Happy Monday. Sorry for not getting last Wednesday’s post on initiatory orders up. That was for a variety of reasons. One – work means I didn’t have much time to write it!

[Pagan Experience] Canon & Headcanon

Prayers from a devotional book.

Within the context of modern religions like the Otherfaith – in which everything we do would count as ‘UPG’ – the term is worse than useless.

Later this week, I’ll be closing out the month with a post on the initiatory orders of the gods. If you have any questions about these, please send them to me or comment on this post, and I will try to cover them in the Wednesday post.

About the Faith
The Otherfaith is a modern polytheistic religion. We are urban-centric, technology-loving, and always keep our eyes to the future. We were born from the modern Pagan and polytheist movements, and from them we have grown and become new, modern, evolving - a new faith. In 2015, we go into this our fifth year and seek to create more solid practices and structures for the faith.
