Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Carson Bixby for Sloane Bixby. You can take the middle-aged man out of quidd—oh, apparently you can't.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

The Church of Magical Jesus

THE CHURCH OF MAGICAL JESUS


Established around about the time that the Church of England split from Rome, the Church of Magical Jesus is magical society’s clearest, most favourable bridge to God. It looks to the New Testament as the story of Jesus, a muggleborn wizard, and God as the divine source of all magic and magical creatures. The ability to use magic is God’s blessing upon an individual and their family, and the loss of that ability a sign that one’s family has fallen from holy favour.

Their symbol is that of the Christian cross, where the long arm has been replaced by a wand to signify the gift of magic to wizardkind.

Most notably, their beliefs state that:
❧ Magic makes wizards closer to God’s image than muggles.
❧ If a wizard is made non-human, it is because they have sinned deeply. If a wizard is made a squib, it is because their family has sinned deeply.
❧ Muggles are to be guided and protected as the lesser of God’s children, but never to be considered equals.
❧ Muggleborns were chosen by God himself, and so are likely to have bright futures if they don’t squander all their potential.
❧ Ghosts are the spirits of sinners too cowardly to go to Hell.
❧ For best results, church is to be attended daily.

Many members of the faith attend 'standard' church services wherever they live, such as at the Church of St Fergus in Irvingly. However, the CMJ also rents out Hogsmeade Hall on the second Sunday of every month for a more CMJ-focused service, members do bible study at one another's homes, and the older ladies of the church have an excellent pamphlet-making-and-distributing system going on.

Wow this list is depressing. Come to God, children!

Oh I meant to post here at some point and never did. :P

Esther Browne attends regularly but mostly to socialize so don't sign her up for any evangelizing.

And I vaguely feel like J. Alfred Darrow + immediate fam were whatever the CMJ version of "Christmas/Easter catholics" is but he definitely hasn't been to church since he returned from the dead because he's a heathen now.

I also headcanoned Walt + other Brownhills as casual/periodic attendees but none of them are currently active, so not particularly useful to you.


is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?
