what is your mission statement?

The mission of the Red Hills Pagan Council is to unite local Pagans. We strive to educate the general public regarding the positive focus of our religious perspectives. We strive to engender goodwill, peace and religious liberty for the positive, earth-based religions which we represent. We welcome all traditions, genders, sexual orientations, races, ages, and paths to join together for the benefit of our community and environment.

what are your principles of unity?

1) We recognize that the earth is alive and all of life is sacred and interconnected. 
2)We practice rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the moon and the seasons. 
3)We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that apparant to the average person. Because it is a far greater than ordinary, it is sometimes called “supernatural,” but we see it as that which is a natural potential within us all. 
4) Honoring both Goddess and God, we work with female and male images of divinity, always remembering that their essence is a mystery which goes beyond form. 
5) We recognize both outer and inner worlds – often referred to as the Spiritual World, Collective Unconscious, Inner Planes, etc. We see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena and magickal exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeking both as necessary for our fulfillment and balance. 
6) We believe in the affirmation and fulfillment of life in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness giving meaning to the Universe we know and our personal role within it. 
7) We welcome all genders, all races, all ages and sexual orientations and all those differences of life situation, background, and ability that increase our diversity. 
8) We work for all forms of justice: environmental, social, political, racial, gender and economic. 
9) We value peace and practice non-violence, in keeping with what is known as the Rede: “Harm none, and do what you will.” 
10) We work to create and sustain communities and cultures that embody our values, that can help to heal the wounds of the earth and her peoples, and that can sustain us and nurture future generations. 
11) We have no animosity towards Christianity, or toward any other religion or philosophy of life, except to reject the premise that these institutions are “the only way” and seek to deny freedom to others and to suppress other ways of religious practice and belief. 
12) As American Pagans, we are not threatened by debates on the history of our practices, the origins or various terms, the legitimacy of various aspects of different traditions. We are concerned only with our present and our future. 
13) We do not accept the concept of absolute evil, nor do we worship any entity known as “Satan” or “the Devil,” as defined by Christian tradition. We do not seek power through the suffering of others, nor accept that personal benefit can be derived only by denial to another.
