Greetings from North Carolina

#1 Postby jaclynchorton » Wed Mar 02, 2016 5:20 pm

Hello and greetings from North Carolina. I live in a small town about an hour east of Asheville, North Carolina. I was born and raised in Alabama (I still have family there) and have lived in several other states as well. I am Transgender and live full time in the female role.

Spiritually I was raised Protestant, Methodist to be specific. I later had my faith shaken in a religion college class that was being led by a Methodist minister. I ended up leaving Christianity and going to Paganism but it didn't feel right to me. I found Gnosticism and was very much intrigued.

I've read Living Gnosis, Cosmic Christ, The Gnostic Gospel of St. Thomas and St. Mary Magdalene: The Gnostic Tradition of the Holy Bride. Ultimately my goal is to become initiated into this tradition.

Many Blessings,

Jaclyn Horton

Shalom Jaclyn, and welcome to our online community!

I too come from a protestant background, as do many here, and nothing felt right, as well, until meeting up with the Sophians. We are blessed to have this light among us.

If you haven't yet found our Tuesday night chats with Elder Sarah, you might enjoy that as well. Here is a link to instructions for joining: http://www.sophian.org/chat_skype.html

Please feel free to ask questions about our teachings and practices.

I look forward to partaking of the delights here with you!

Sheryl

Shalom Jaclyn
It's so good to read a welcome post from someone that is not to far away on this side of the Earth. I think we are about 2.5 hours apart from each other. I will P.M. my contact information and we can get hopefully together. I am located in East Tennessee. So good to hear from you and I look forward to our exchange. Welcome to the forums :D

Shalom
Brian
