Does anyone incorporate foreign gods into their practice?

I don't, but I haven't actively excluded them either, I guess.  I've just never felt any call or any need to do so.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it, and all that.  Wink

If I were in a situation where I felt I might need to honor a foreign deity, what I'd do about it would probably depend on the deity in question.  If it were a deity from a pantheon with a history of syncretism with the Greek pantheon, I'd probably look into that.  If not, I'd be more likely to investigate what their native culture did to honor them than to try to force them into a Hellenic framework.
