PaganNewsBeagle Wednesday Community News April 22

Today's Earth Day, and our PaganNewsBeagle today celebrates what we like to think of as Mother Earth's big birthday party with stories that dig under the birthday candles. Is Earth Day a religious celebration?; simple Earth spell; Pagan statement on the environment; Jason (the Wild Hunt) sounds off; things we've learned since last Earth day.

Is Earth Day actually Pagan? (In which case, legally, it might not be legal for schools to celebrate it due to separation of church and state.) A recent court decision says, "No." (Which is actually good news for our side.)

Pagan News Beagle Fiery Tuesday Feb 24

On Fiery Tuesdays the Pagan News Beagle highlights stories of activism as they affect Pagan culture. Today we highlight the recent Pantheacon conference, and on reactions to a specific incident that highlighted ongoing concerns over racism in our communities.

This year's Pantheacon festival had many wonderful events (covered by many PaganSquare bloggers) and one very notable controversy. This blog post describes the core of the controversy, (and is also the location of an apology by the authors of the document in question.)

A Pagan in Bible College

Alumni visit their colleges to re-connect with old friends and relive memories of the good old days. Unless, of course, they graduated from Bible College and then left the faith. In that case, visiting the college feels more like being a stranger in a strange land.

Eight years after earning a BA in theology and biblical languages I returned to Multnomah University as a Pagan. After leaving my Christian faith, I lamented that my theological education was a "waste of time". But with my embrace of Paganism my perspective changed. It didn't take long for me to discover that my theological education was an invaluable asset for interfaith dialogue between Christians and Pagans.
