Bridget Hussey writes her intentions for the new year on a piece of paper before the members of Oak Spirit participate in ritual. Hussey, of Fayette, Mo., has practiced Wicca for 30 years, but this Yule celebration was the first time she ever attended a group pagan event. Hussey described her experience as powerful and said the celebration made her feel less alone in her practices. RNS photo by Mikala Compton
