Not sure of what you mean here... if you mean a Shaman then yes, if you mean a shirt wearer, then yes, if you mean an elder who's visions were held as gospel by the tribe , yes.

Terminologies differ betwen the tribes.

I guess could say a very, very, very old almost Uber-Shaman. I'll give you a better definition later when I can conjugate my verbs better. laugh.gif

Religion is for those who are afraid of going to Hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

Is there a category for Other? :grin:

I'm a Heathen. Which I view as distinct from say, Asatru. A-S deities, with a fair number of Celtic ones thrown in as well because I thrive on non-conformity. (My hearth goddess is Egyptian. Go figure).

Then the answer is yes! He held the wisdom of the ancient ones and could read souls! He was only able to pass on some of this to me and his son Crow.
But he still visits in dreams.

Those kinds of visits are great. My father visits me that way too.

Very interesting and fascinating discussion stream , i have to say. The first one i read from first to last lol. I think I am still a Christian, tho I am not practising at the moment. I however believe in God, His Son Jesus my Saviour and King, the Bible as it was written (i. e. i hold it for true and without mistakes) and the Holy Spirit as God's representative within every Christian (confused? It's bloody hard to explain the Trinity, best is still one of these to make a real window ye need a frame, glass and a hande smile.gif ) It is very hard not to believe in God's guidance in my life, and the power of prayer too.

I studied 3 years at the Bibelseminar Wuppertal (a bible college), went for a placement in a holiday and conference centre in North Yorkshire (was 2 and a half years there in the community) . From there I went ever so often to Scotland for my holidays and concerts , had some very deep experiences there too (esp. old St. Peters Church in Wick and Dreyburgh Abbey). A meeting with a crazy lass from germany (sorry Inga lol) settled more or less my direction .... and the rest is history , as the saying goes biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

N.B.: If I am saying I am not a practising Christian it just means that I have no contact to a parish church at the moment, and shamefully find it very hard indeed to keep up with my bible readings, but I am living my faith and bear witness rather with deeds than words, tho I am more than willing to give those if required smile.gif

Personally, I think that is the best way to do it! Just because someone goes to a worship service does not make them a good (enter type of faith here... smile.gif )
It is far easier to say "well, I go to Church, Temple " or whatever....

It is far more difficult to practice what you believe.... wink.gif

Good for you! It's very nice to hear..... smile.gif

I once had a discussion with the Methodist Minister of the church my wifew and kids go to... ( he is a very smart and wise man ).

It went sort of like this:

minister " Why don't you come to church on Sunday with your family?"

me " I attend church every Sunday! While you and those of your flock are in a church built of wood , mud brick, and stone made by man; I am in a catherdal
built of wood, mud brick, and stone made by the MAN! You see I go to the top of the mountains and look over all the beauty that the creator has made and stand in awe!!!

minister "I stand corrected"

This is a true story!
