That last one... the author says if He called you through a piece of pop media, it's because it was a good way to reach you. I so agree. Smile

Can I get a Amen?

If you think about it, people have lost faith in religion and our world leaders have little about them to admire. So who are people-especially young people-to turn to for inspiration and as role models? The movie theaters are their churches and the silver screen, the pulpits.

Faith is where you find it.

I was called via pop media.
In 2010 I was a part of the fandom around the tv series "
Supernatural"
. One of the characters, who showed up three times, was a Trickster god. Well, it turned out to be the archangel Gabriel masquerading as Loki, but it inspired a lot of fan fictions about his life as "
Loki"
.
I was inspired to re-read the old Norse myths, because I wanted to write fan fiction myself.
Then, after talking to a Pagan friend who had a Patron god (Ares), I began to wonder if I had a Patron/Matron deity. One night I prayed to the Divine to show me who my Patron/Matron deity was, and I prayed to Loki and told Him that He was my favourite god, and would He want to work with me. And a couple of weeks later, Loki showed up in a dream for the first time, and He stayed.

I know one other Lokean who was also inspired and called via Supernatural and fan fiction.

I also think it doesn't matter what triggered the interest in this or that god. And especially with Loki, you mention His name and there is always a voice in the crowd calling you better be careful who you worship. I think Loki does and has to use any means to reach out. And I am thankful He does that.
