My latest at Polytheist.com is up
My latest article is now available at polytheist.com. Here I discuss the need for articulated discussions and explorations of theology within Heathenry, and the ongoing tension between praxis and doxa. I talk about the need to go past flat discussions of ‘lore’ and provide a few concrete examples of how to begin the process of moving from conversion mindset to something closer approximating that of pre-Christian Heathenry. Ultimately I ask the question, so aptly synthesized by the editor at polytheist.com, of “where does theology dwell?” Why do we need these discussion so desperately and precisely what is it that will allow us to build a sustainable, inter-generational tradition?
Check it out, folks and feel free to leave feedback either here or at polytheist.com. This is a continuation of the discussion of tradition and what it means to prioritize that over the individual, and what it means to keep the Gods at the heart of it all.
