I joined the Awen's Light Grove (ALG) online meetup a couple months ago, and after following them for a bit, decided to introduce myself in person at Pagan Pride Festival in Raleigh, NC a couple weeks ago, which convinced me to join OBOD. The Druid Path is not new to me; I have counted myself a Druid for some 15 years, and have been studying and learning mostly on my own - other than involvement with "non-denominational pagan" groups through the Unitarian Universalist Church, and casual involvement with an informal Druid group here in NC a few years ago. I grew up with a fairly traditional (but also liberal) Christian mom & an atheist/agnostic dad, and had some interesting experiences with that! But, after spending a fair amount of time studying various types of religious/spiritual practices, and finding that both all of them fit, and none of them fit, I raised my kids as pagan Unitarian Universalists. I won't share my age, but I will say that those kids are now 29 and 25 years old!
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and participating in this community!
Great to meet to karen,
A huge welcome to you
