Are Christianity and Witchcraft mutually exclusive? Can you be both a follower of Jesus and a Witch? Rev. Lizann Bassham shares her experience of being "out of the broom closet" in her Christian denomination as a Reclaiming Tradition Witch, and out of the "Christ closet" in her Reclaiming Witch tradition and work with Pagan communities as a United Church of Christ Minister. Folk of all traditions are welcome with questions and wisdom in this experience of, and conversation about, how Jesus and The Craft work together in honoring The Earth, and working for social justice and healing.

Rev. Lizann Bassham is an ordained United Church of Christ minister and a member of the Northbay Ritual Planning Cell in the Reclaiming Witch Tradition. She serves as Campus Pastor at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley working with a multi-faith student community. She is a columnist for SageWoman magazine, a blogger for Pagan Square, and a curriculum writer and workshop and retreat leader for several Christian denominations and organizations. Once, quite by accident, she won a salsa dance contest in East L.A.
