I’m pretty sure you’ve all heard the story of Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church.

These guys which have absolutely no connection to the real Baptist Church are notorious for having no shame whatsoever and showing up with hate-filled signs at schools, military funerals and even at a place in Charleston, West Virginia where 29 miners were recently killed in a tragic accident.

Don’t you just love spring? The nature comes to life: flowers are blooming, trees are green, sun is shinning and happiness is in the air – at least that’s how I feel about this season. Spring is probably my favorite time of the year, alongside Christmas of course, because it just makes me feel more alive than ever.

Even though a lot of good movies are rolling in theatres right now I still feel the need to watch some of my all time favorites again. Practical Magic starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman has been my perfect movie ever since I first watched it about twelve years ago. Wow – time sure goes by fast! I remember being very interested in love spells and candles after watching this family-fairytale like film.

What’s the point of prayer? April 2, 2010

Posted by The Wayward Wiccan in : Random Ramblings , 1 comment so far

There are some (like me) who see prayer as a way of relief and some that see it like a total waste of time. Those who see it as an action with no calling for usually think this way: “If the gods are so divine, so powerful, don’t they know already what our wishes, our problems are? Do we really need to tell them and ask for help?” Well, you kind of do need to tell them. Just think of it this way: sometimes we don’t know for sure what we really want so it may be hard for the gods to know exactly what it is that we want.
