So you want to be a Christian Witch part IV…

#considering craft

Christian friends have an uncanny way of asking you the exact questions you would rather not answer. My personal favorite question was always: “So how is Jesus in your life?” Excellent segue, Christina!

In all fairness though, prying is part of true friendship. I don’t often want to face the questions that they ask me. These questions challenge my faith and cause me to grow exponentially.

And I truly hate giving up the truthfulness I once had in these conversations. Answering “So how is Jesus in your life?” with “Awesome! We warded my room with salt, and yesterday he found me a giant feather! Totally gonna use that FIVEVER!!!” generally doesn’t go well when you aren’t out of the broom closet (or afterwards for that matter.)

The worst part of being a Christian witch is the lack of community. There are so few people that you can be truly open with. Most Christian witches only have access to online communities. Though it is better to have some community than none, the lack of physical presence and touch can be discouraging.

Are you prepared to leave behind the closeness you once had with your community? Even more importantly, are you willing to put forth extra effort in contributing to a community you cannot touch?

For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.

-Romans 1:11-12

The majority of you cannot embrace a fellow Christian witch, except in spirit. Pray that that is enough.

Make an effort this week to reach out to a Christian witch in order to encourage them or donate your knowledge.
