Pagan Values Event 2012

Welcome to the 2012 Event archival page!

Started as a blog carnival in 2009 and expanded into an open event for bloggers and podcasters in 2010, this event lasts the month of June and provides a bully pulpit for Pagans and Polytheists and many others to speak about our Values. In a world where our many faiths and paths are often held up for ridicule or as straw dogs of evil for Fundamentalists, it would be easy to remain silent; especially as articulating our values and how we act upon them challenges the Fundamentalist’s claim of ownership over all Values and Virtues, and can attract unwanted attention from them

However, in not articulating these things we also miss out on the friendships and connections that can arise with like-minded folks of many Faiths and Paths. We miss out on the opportunity to speak the Truth of who we are and what we do. We miss the chance to perhaps bring some much needed change and inspiration to a world in need.

What are the Ethics, the Virtues, and Values that Contemporary Paganism has taught you to cherish, to live, to bring with you in your every interaction with the world? What do you do, inspired by these values? What adventures, or misadventures, has your Paganism and the Values and Virtues and Ethics it has inspired led you too? What and who have you encountered on your spiritual and moral journey as a Pagan? How have you acted upon these Values. What have you done inspired by these Virtues? What wrestling matches have you had when these Ethics encountered the real world?

Late, but not Least!

Because sometimes, every writer or media producer has multiple projects going on at once; and because so many of us do our blogs and podcasts and other media projects OUTSIDE of our day-jobs and other aspects of our lives… folks sometimes end up getting their contributions out late… this also is fabulous!

(In General, you have to either have announced your intention to put something out in June or earlier… but feel free to contact me, I’m open to being wow-ed by you!   Also in General early to mid July is all right, past that is rather pushing things a bit unless you announced in June or earlier)
