Introduction, Workshop 22: Neo-Paganism—The Sacredness of Creation

In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program

When one defines oneself as Pagan, it means she or he follows an earth or nature religion, one that sees the divine manifest in all creation.

The cycles of nature are our holy days, the earth is our temple, its plants and creatures our partners and teachers.

We worship a deity that is both male and female, a mother Goddess and father God, who together created all that is, was, or will be. We respect life, cherish the free will of sentient beings, and accept the sacredness of all creation. — Edain McCoy, Wiccan author

This workshop looks at aspects of Neo-Paganism, touching on a few branches of this large and diverse movement. If you or your co-leader identify as Pagan or know members of the congregation who do and are willing to participate, consider adding personal experiences to this workshop.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
