"Hello, my name is Danielle ... and I handle PR for Australia-based author and Wiccan educator Lady Tamara Von Forslun, who recently published the first installment in her series about the Wicca religion titled Complete Teachings of Wicca Book One: The Seeker."
I received this e-mail in my inbox yesterday. Yes, really.
Apparently, Forslun writes under the moniker "The Witch of Oz." In her new book, she offers readers a "comprehensive introductory guide to the foundational teachings of the Wicca tradition that encourages [you] to explore their spiritual depths, reflect on the needs of their soul and reawaken and rejuvenate their natural self."
Forslun has been walking as a witch for more than five decades and now she wants to help you find the witch in you, her PR person says. They offered to send me a review copy and hope I'll interview her. Yes, really.
"Through this series, I hope to educate others about this ancient and powerful belief system while also honoring and respecting human differences with tolerance and openness," says Forslun. "Ultimately, Complete Teachings of Wicca shows us how we can awaken the Witch within and become one with each other, nature and the Goddess."
I don't have a witch within. I have the Holy Spirit. No one else has a witch within either. We are created in the image of God, who is not a witch or a warlock or a goddess.
I am not writing this article to pick a fight. I am writing this article to shine light into the darkness. Ephesians 5:12-14 says. "For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things are exposed when they are revealed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. Therefore He says: 'Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light."
