What Does It Mean To Be A Priest or Priestess? By Datura Mandragora

I’ve been planning on taking my 2nd Degree by the end of this year. Until recently, individuals that obtained their 2nd degrees didn’t go by priest or priestess, however there is now a precedent to do so.I’ve been reflecting on what those terms mean to me as I prepare to take this step. Mainly, my question is framed as, “What does being a priest or priestess mean? Which do you serve: the Gods or the Community? What does that role look like in public vs in private?”
