Immanion Press author Lisa Spiral has a Guest Editorial over at the PNC Minnesota site this week. Below is the first paragraph of that editorial with a link back to the rest of the editorial:

When you add to that an international following and crazy modern scheduling you have a practice of worship that is truly Neo-Pagan.
