So why is it hard to believe that the early formation of the Christian church had to destroy any possibility that Jesus was a mystic, a magician, a Jewish sorcerer? We will explore how it is OK to follow Jesus and practice the ancient wisdom of Paganism.
Speaker: Snowdancer (AKA Jim Becker)
Snowdancer, also known as Jim Becker, is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Jackson, Mississippi. You might wonder why he is using the name of Snowdancer over his birth-name. Snowdancer’s animal spirit is the fox. Many years ago, he claimed the fox as his animal spirit and the dance is done by the fox, both in play and in hunting in the deep snows of winter. In addition, as he heads towards the title of Priestx within Stone Circle Wicca, the craft name is fitting.
Snowdancer comes with a history of serving UU Church of Jackson for 29 years, serving as an ordained minister in Metropolitan Community Church since 1980, and as pastor emeritus of Safe Harbor Family Church of Jackson, now a United Church of Christ affiliate.
His activism includes LGBTQ+ issues, street ministries that included transgender prostitutes, white people healing racism, encounter groups, nursing home and prison ministries.
Jim’s life-mate of 32 years, Freeman, is a life-long resident of Mississippi. Jim’s daughter (Kathryn) and grandson (Hayden) live in Ohio. His fur babies are a four pound Chihuahua, Mikey (who thinks he is a Rottweiler) and JayLo, the sweetest Chiweenie in the whole wide world.
