Those of you that know me understand this situation. I am a former Catholic turned Witch. I married into a Christian family and my family of origin still practice the Catholic faith. Because of this situation occasionally my children do get exposed to church. They also get exposed to tarot cards and such. It's hard to actually celebrate sabbats and stuff with them because of the marriage. The husband would probably have a fit.
A month or two ago my daughter asked me to take her to church. Even though I hate going to church when she asks I try to take her. Well about three weeks ago I took her to a service.
What was interesting about the service was the preachers message. As well as the childrens church talking about Ester ( a woman in the bible). If only ther realized what they were truly teaching. ;).
Well I sat in the back row because of the two kids and my 3 yr old not being exposed to church services nearly as often as my daughter doesn't behave very well in that setting.
The preachers message this particular day was very interesting. Ever since that day the message has stuck with me. And looking over some of my friends pagan albums made me smile thinking about it.
The basic message was that the Christians are not "testifying for the Lord Jesus Christ" anymore. Of course with those of us being there he did state that he felt like he was preaching to the choir, unbeknownst to him a witch was in the back row. He also mentioned that attendance is steadily decreasing. Another quote from the preacher "Soon, we Christians will be the minority. We will be living in a Pagan world. Maybe then, maybe then we will start testifying again. " Of course there was lots more in the message regarding this new situation. Keep in mind I live in KS. So getting a message like this from a preacher was fascinating. When he was talking about soon the Christians being a minority and living in a Pagan world, I couldn't help but smile. It felt good knowing that the old beliefs may be mainstream again soon. I hope I live to see that day!
