Excommunicated from his church, pastor draws praise and condemnation from pagans and Christians

19 January 2008
Phil Wyman has participated in the synchronised blogging posts, called “synchroblogs”, which this blog has participated in. In fact Phil was the one who thought of having a synchroblog in the first place. Now he’s in the news in his home town of Salem, Massachusetts, for his outreach ministry to neopagans, which has stirred controversy.Anyway the article makes interesting reading, and if you’ve read any of Phil’s synchroblog and other writings, it can give an idea of where he’s coming from.

Salem – �Pastor Phil Wyman would be the first to agree that he’s a black sheep among clergy. An expert on Wicca, a well practiced interpreter of dreams, Wyman has been an avid participant in the city’s annual Halloween celebration, supporting a holiday many Christians believe to be a symbol of darkness and the occult.

A little over a year ago Wyman was excommunicated from his church

Today the church continues to operate, although it no longer has a parent church, and has about 45 members.
�Wyman’s mission is to break stereotypes about Christians and Wiccans. He says many Christians don’t realize Wicca is a nature-based religion.

    Hey Steve,

    I did not see that you had posted this – thanks so much for doing so. I can’t tell you how much every voice of support means to me.

    Phil
