So I had an excuse to shift in public last Sunday. My church is well-known in our town for being full of hippies/communists, so I (despite being mostly pagan) feel comfortable there. For the past few weeks, the sermons have been about the stereotypical prophet, an old dude in a white robe with a staff, and how actual prophets aren't always like that. Two weeks ago, they talked about how children, women, and people of color can be prophets. Last week, they went even further and said nonhuman beings could be prophets. To reinforce this, we all went outside and ~communed with nature~ for ten minutes, then wrote down what we would say to mankind from the perspective of a nonhuman. Obviously, this was no problem for me! After lying down in the grass and shifting for a while, I felt a whole lot better about myself, even though I didn't have much to say. So, there ya go, that's the story.
