Dawn and Questioner, I hope you do not mind me adding to this.



Wicca is a poly form faith.  In many ways, for Wiccans, there is no right or wrong way.  Their ways of worshiping the Gods and Goddesses, could range from acknowledging all the Gods, to believing that every Female Goddess in Mythology are just aspects  of the Goddess.  Gods and Goddesses not having names, is a Christian Belief that comes from Judaism, and even practiced by Muslims.  A reason that is forgotten by most, is because it is against the Laws of of their Faith to speak/write the name of their God.



This Idea was carried on into the Early Wiccan Churches, here in America.



For my Faith, we worship Our Gods and Goddesses with our Deeds, Shilds, and Stories.  We worship them by doing the things they taught us to do.  We do not have the ability to walk shoulder to shoulder with them into battle anymore, but we can do the things they taught us to do.  If we make ourselves strong again, maybe they will return or stand up and say, "You finally pulled your head from the dark, foul smelling place."  For us, it does not matter, we have duties to attend to as men and women.  We worship our Gods and Goddesses, by being Men and Women.

Expertise

I am able to answer most questions about Pagan religions and magic. I am particularly experienced in the areas of Hearth Magic and Kitchen Witchery, including magical cooking and gardening, herbal lore and Hellenic mythology. I specialize in matters relating to Pagan children and family. I am also well-versed in Western European spirituality including Wicca and Druidry, though I belong to neither. My particular religious interest is in Hellenic polytheism. I am unable to answer specific theological, historical or liturgical questions related to African Synchretic Spirituality (Santeria, Voodun, Umbanda, etc.) or Heathenry (Asatru, Odinism, etc.)

Experience

I have been a Pagan for over 20 years and a NeoHellenic Polytheist for 15. I have over 5 years experience planning and executing public Pagan events, particularly public rituals and family events. I have three children I am raising to honor Nature and the Hellenic Gods and to respect all faiths.
