Pagan News Beagle: Watery Wednesday, January 13

Ten Pagans who made a difference in 2015 are remembered and honored. Some of the most interesting Pagan books are listed. And the place of Heathens in the U.S. military is examined. It's Watery Wednesday, our weekly segment on news from within the Pagan community. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

As the old year comes to a close and a new one begins we often look back on the old to see what a difference it's made in our lives... and what a difference some people made in particular. Over at Patheos, Peter Dybing gathers his list of "10 Pagans Who Made a Difference in 2015."

Radical politics and Pagan website Gods & Radicals is looking for submissions! Check out their call for submissions here if you're interested in writing for A Beautiful Resistance, their new journal.

What's the most interesting Pagan book ever? Such a question is without a doubt highly subjective, but that hasn't stopped Inciting a Riot from assembling a list of suggestions.

If there's one thing we're always impressed by it's the generosity and open-hearted nature of the Pagan community. The Wild Hunt has a recent heartwarming example of compassion, when several Pagans in Nottingham rallied to feed impoverished refugees.

It's probably easier to be openly Pagan than ever before in United States history. But that doesn't mean it's easy, especially in a rigid organization like the U.S. military. For that reason, the Norse Mythology Blog has put together a guide for chaplains administering to Heathens in the military.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
