...Former very liberal Lutheran with an emphasis on the love and grace of God but not so much on the hellfire and damnation; former sort-of agnostic squishy indie Pagan with (at the time) few religious roots and fewer firm or organized principles; former seeker and flirter with a path that I should've seen coming long before it snuck up, hit me over the head, and dragged me off to Greece.


Wow!  If you replace Lutheran with Episcopalian and Greece with Egypt, that's my religious history.

  Now, it's "Non-Recon Kemetic," which, since almost everybody who ever asked has responded, "Hunh?" gets translated as "I worship the gods of ancient Egypt--at least some of them--with prayers and offerings, but not the same way the ancient Egyptians worshipped, since we don't know much about the religious lives of ordinary people, and there's no way I'm any kind of cleric. In daily life, I try to uphold Ma'at, which is both a principle and a goddess.  There is no one-word translation;  Ma'at is truth, honor, justice, Cosmic and personal order, righteousness, and 'the way things ought to be.' "
