My thanks to Virginia Carper and John Halstead, for allowing me to link back to your material! Virginia Carper has two pieces you should check out! Her #mypolytheism contribution can be found here. She also shares with us what it’s like to practice with a brain injury. I especially love this latter contribution. This is the nitty-gritty stuff I want people to be talking about — how does your practice look, with the unique challenges you face. How does your practice answer the needs you have, how are these things addressed? Thank you, Virginia, for sharing this with us.
John Halstead also shares with us a glimpse into his polytheism, and I’m not going to lie — I was super excited to see this. Not. All. Polytheism. Looks. The Same. I prefer to hear the stories you tell about your practice, not the stories others tell about your practice, and I’m glad he’s chosen to share a bit of the story he tells about his practice.
I’ve also added a link to Kallisti’s Polytheism’s Visibility Matters, because it does. For all that I started #mypolytheism, I’m not a huge user of hashtags, and I’m a dabbler when it comes to Twitter. But: I can’t be a supporter of the importance and awesomeness of online community/ies, their potential, and ignore the importance of using the tools that are available to us — including hashtags and such. It’s not something I think a whole lot about, and I value this post for prodding me to think about it a bit more.
Pictures have been added to the gallery, so check that out, as well.
There’s a new FB group (well, new-ish?) focused on Polytheist and Pagan Monasticism, so check that out, too, if you’re interested. (It’s Polytheist and Pagan Monasticism, surprisingly enough. It’s a closed group, but joining is easy!)
To help keep all the balls in the air, I’m going to be blogging once a week here, announcing additions as applicable. I’ll be posting links more frequently to the FB page, so if you’re following that, these updates will likely be repetitive. Sorry about that! And thanks again to everyone who is making My Polytheism great!
