Thing on Thursday #2
Evolution happens. This site began with a statement of principles called the Fourfold Path, but Humanistic Paganism has evolved quite a bit since then. Now it’s high time to revisit the basics.
The goal here is not to decree what individuals should believe or do. Far from it! The idea is to find out what values we hold in common.
Think about what you, personally, value most about the Humanistic Pagan path. Nevermind what’s already been put forward, this is about your vision. What do you value most?
If you feel more than three are absolutely essential, please say so in the comments, perhaps ranking your choices in order if you like. Furthermore, are there elements missing here? Are some inappropriate? Why or why not?
No doubt there will be a lot of “yes, but…” and “only if…” responses, so feel free to elaborate.
Please share your thoughts in the comments below!
About Thing on Thursday
This post is part of a series of councils on matters vital to the future. The name represents both the generic term for, you know, a thingie, as well as the Old Norse term for a council of elders: a Thing.
Each week until the Winter Solstice, Thing on Thursday will explore a new controversy. Participation is open to all – the more minds that come together, the better. Those who have been vocal in the comments are as welcome as those quiet-but-devoted readers who have yet to venture a word. We value all constructive opinions.
There are only a few rules:
- be constructive – this is a council, so treat it as such
- be respectful – no rants or flames
Comments will be taken into consideration as we determine the new direction of Humanistic Paganism. This will also greatly shape the vision that unfolds in our upcoming ebook Our Ancient Future: Visions of Humanistic Paganism.
So please make your voice heard in the comments!
