Remember my very first podcast, when I asked the very basic question of why we can't all get along? I see an improvement in that situation.
The one who seems to be leading the charge is someone who was once expected to be a sitck-in-the-mud! But, rather than that, someone of major significance to all religious paths has broken with the past and moved to heal wounds which have been festering for over a thousand years. While some might criticize Pope Benedict as not having done quite enough, what he did accomplish in a few days was more than his predecessors ever did! And what does that have to do with us?
Well, something similar is happening for us! The Pagan Headstone Campaign, the Veterans' Pentacle Quest, the Order of the Pentacle all have a couple of things in common. Besides the fact that they came into being to right an injustice, they have also brought people together.
So, what's the big deal about a single-issue campaign? The big deal is that people are coming together, putting any differences into perspective, and getting a job done! And that's the point! We're learning to come together when there's work to done without homogenizing ourselves.
In light of history, perhaps that's one of the more important things we can do! The Aquarian Age is beginning and, as the saying goes, it's "a whole new ballgame." And that means that coming together and working together when there's a job to be done will be all the more important.
And it's coming to be!
