Yes, Seraphim, it is only with the help of the process of time and the good folks here that I am beginning to overcome my fears of all things "pagan" - a fear which was planted in my heart by my strict evangelical, iconoclastic former affiliation. Slowly, slowly I too am able to see the tremendous beauty and wisdom of the Church for doing as She does and has done, and am beginning to see that perhaps my own "paganophobia" stems from my own deep-rooted paganism. Does this make sense? Weird. I know it likely sounds peculiar.
