Gay Celtic ChristoPagan here in Metro-NYC
« on: February 13, 2013, 05:37:53 am »
I'm Brian (njsquarebear). Gay man in Metro-NYC. While I 'experimented' with paganism back in my 20's... it is now at age 55 that I am embracing Pagan-Wiccan teachings and the God(dess), as well being as best a follower of Jesus that I can be. I don't really like the word 'Christian' because Christianity has done more harm than good over the past 2000+ years to Pagans, Muslims, Native Americans, etc. That said, ChristoPagan more easily describes in a nutshell how I identify within the pagan community and with other progressive Christians. I am active in a United Church of Christ congregation for 12 years, but my religious views are probably closer to that of Unitarian-Universalist (embracing all positive spiritualities and world religions which are life-sustaining). At present I am interested in all things Celtic... and looking into Druidism to be a primary path. I also am very interested in the positive properties of minerals and herbs. I am interested in making friends here and in person in the metro-NYC area... both hetero and LGBT.
peace,
Brian (njsquarebear)

Hello, there, Brian--another metro-NYC (Manhattan) gay male pagan here, of the same age range. I'm not sure what ChristoPaganism entails, but maybe you can expand. Anyway, welcome!
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Welcome. You're by the no means the first Christian Druid out there, as I'm sure you know (but if not, you might find OBOD interesting, as that's where a few Christian Druids seem to find their home). Hope you enjoy the board!
