Desert Spirit Covenant of Pagans
Take on Faith – January 2, 2021
This episode of Take on Faith, from KTAL-LP 101.5 FM, is unique. It features members of the Desert Spirit Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPs) of Las Cruces. The speakers are Lora Jackson Legare, Victor Gibbs, and Cassandra Calway. With host, Rev. Xolani Kacela, they engaged in a lively conversation about paganism. Surprisingly, the conversation had many surprising twists and turns. Significantly, two members switched to paganism from Christianity and one came from a family of atheists.
For those interested, the faith group meets at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces. During the conversation, they explored several traditions under the pagan umbrella. Individually and collectively, they described the many facets of pagan spiritual practices. For example, they shared how Wiccans find hope and inspiration. Also, they talked about ways the practice helps people deal with life’s troubles. The latter, you’ll discover, involved being in community and caring for one another. Lastly, you will enjoy hearing how these practitioners developed confidence to practice a tradition that some find unusual.
