So, as some know, I started my life off on the path of Christianity. I flitted around denominations and spent most of my time at a co-operating parish. (If you’re wondering it was Anglican, Presbyterian, and Methodist.) I even dabbled at a Baptist church for the sake of my boyfriend. (Got kicked out of the youth group for asking questions about discrepancies, and labelled a whore and a slut for reaching out to a male who was clearly gay and clearly self-harming. I gave him my phone number so I clearly wanted to seduce him…)
Right, getting off topic.
So that’s where I started and even though my journey has taken me down many other avenues of experience and learning and spirituality, I still have a connection and fascination with things that are often labelled Christian. Like angels, demons, stigmata, possession. And after watching an episode of X-Files last night entitled All Souls, my brain is back in that mode. I could go into why I think that these things interest me but I believe that is probably another post in itself, or, more likely, a story. (It wouldn’t be the first time I wrote about angels, demons or any other kind of religious supernatural occurrence.)
So, what I would love from everyone is your favourite or most interesting books, movies, TV-Shows that deal with these concepts. Factual or fictional, I want to know what they are.
Al and I are already talking about a Millennium re-watch. I have loved that show since it came on TV, even if a few episodes led to me having issues with dark and stormy nights and staircases.
And, as I have elements of these concepts woven into the books and stories to come, I would love to learn more and experience other interpretations of them.
So, fire away, what should I be watching or reading?
