Okay, I have considered myself to be Wiccan since high school, roughly around age 14 (about 12 years ago). My husband considers himself to be Baptist. This has caused a few misconceptions and miscommunications between us, but nothing extravagant. I was raised Baptist by my parents, both my grandfathers were ministers, as well as 2 of my great-grandfathers...I understand it, I just don't follow it. Needless to say, not many in my family know my religious beliefs, except for my parents, husband, and his parents & sister...I told my brother, but I don't think he really understands religion (raised very, very differently).
We are expecting our first child. I want as much time as possible to try to make this go as smoothly as possible, because I want to raise our kids to be open-minded and with an understanding that there are many different kinds of belief. Hubby isn't really sure WHAT he thinks we should do...
We don't currently attend church, but I would like to start, so that I can find somewhere that I'm not too uncomfortable before the baby is born. I'm usually pretty sporadic about rituals as well, normally just trying to be aware of the impact of my actions and to appreciate the world around me. I've always been a solitary practioner, so I generally just go with what feels right at the time.
Does anyone have any experience/thoughts/advice on this?
