The mxgender Priestxes of Come As You Are Pagan Congregation invite people of any and all genders - or none - to join us in exploring our divine nature as children of the stars. Together, we open our hearts to mystery and make a wish for the future.
If you are working with gods and goddesses or even spirits, learning more about them and their alignments can open you up for more thorough understanding of your belief system, and find ways to be more inclusive. Are only goddesses nurturing? Are only gods protective? Are there beings who do not identify as either, already present in the history?
