We've talked about coming out of the broomcloset. Now, let's deal with the one occasion when outsiders are forced to deal with our existence - public rituals.
Most discussion among Wiccans about public rituals deals with how to officiate. There's more to it than that, and there are some principles which apply whether you're officiating or merely attending.
If you've gotten the point about anything about The Craft, you already know that there is no such thing as "knowing enough" or "knowing all about" any subject that is of any consequence. But in a public ritual, you sometimes have to deal with people who think that they know all that they need to know.
Four basic principles. Actually think of them as tools. Armed with them, you'll disarm those who would be your/our enemies. Use them wisely, you'll do well for yourself and all of us.
Like so much else, those four tools have been hiding in plain sight.
