On behalf of Gaia's Rocky Mountain Covenant here in Summit County, I would like to thank the Summit Daily for their wonderful article on the Wiccan group in Newcastle. Not only was it very well-written, but it presented the community in a way that is positive, the way practitioners like myself view our religion. Unfortunately, the media is not always kind when it comes to those of us who follow any nature-based spiritual path.
The article was not only factual, but also light-hearted. The interviews from several different people in several different walks of life is an accurate representation of who we are...and while we are certainly a diverse group, ranging from college students, professionals, business owners, conservatives, and liberals alike, we all follow a life-affirming path that is inherently tied to the natural world in which we live and interact.
