For many months, Iíve been asking Renee if she and Michael are dating. She has consistently denied that they were involved. Saturday I asked her once again, and was once again lied to. For me, this was the last straw. It is inexplicable to me that she would continue to deny the obvious when I even brought someone to the gathering. I cannot see any valid reason for the dishonesty. Besides feeling betrayed, I feel that I have been insulted.
I do not have an issue with Renee and Michael being together. My issue is the lies. A coven is built on several pillars, and trust is the most important of them. Without trust, we have nothing; not love, not respect, not even friendship.
I cannot be in a coven under these conditions, let alone serve as High Priest. I must therefore leave the coven, effective immediately. Andy says that he feels the same way, and is also leaving the coven.
Please understand that I do not hold any of you responsible for this in any way. It was Reneeís place to tell me the truth, and no one elseís. For those of you who wish to remain in contact with me, you are welcome. For those who donít, I understand and bear no ill feelings.
I do not regret helping with your spiritual paths, and I wish all of you the best in your futures. May you find love, happiness, and spiritual fulfillment.
Love and light,
