A few things I want my heathenry to be/avoid:

I want to stay away from being 'churchy'. I'm awful at rituals, terrible about pounding 'carved in stone' aspects of religious observance. I'm not keen on trudging through the act of hallowing any sort of gift to the gods, and maintaining a stand-alone ritual space makes me itch.

I am not into being critical of other religions. We can all improve our relationship with what's numinous, perhaps by toeing the line, or else loosening our underpants.

I really like the idea of informal observances, but am aware that things can get so laid back, I could ask myself 'why bother'? Or, 'why even call it a religious view'? I continue to wrassle with defining this better.

It's all a work in progress. I reckon that if it gets to the point where all the questions are answered, then it's time to take up collecting swizzle-sticks.
