    Discovering Hellenic Polytheism

    I have always been involved in "alternative" religion. At 17, I discovered Wicca. At 19, I began training formally in an Alexandrian Wiccan coven, and continued that training for about 12 years. The last few years, I've been floating, though. Wicca, while I still love...

    feeling for about a month now, I'm afraid to act on them. I believe in the God of Abraham and Jesus, yet I have the nagging feeling that there are more gods. I need help.
