Progressive Christian Ideologies on Grace, Faith, and the Trinity?

From your website I have had many of my questions answered. I am a member of a relatively progressive Lutheran Church, but have more of a Methodist or Wesleyan concept of Grace. I could not find any ideologies on Grace or even Faith in your website or other sources on Progressive Christianity. Personally my faith is based on continuing my quest of “the Truth” or “the Logos” and I believe that salvation is by Faith, but it must be followed by a Discipleship much like that of Bonhoeffer. I could likewise not find a position on the Trinity, something that I feel is necessary in an absolute monotheism. Finally, the idea of a soul, immortal or not, was not revealed in your doctrine as I in my brief and incomplete review of Progressive Christianity. Thank you for any enlightenment or source of clarification.

If heaven is more than simply a place

From the Boundless Life collection

If Heaven is more than simply a place,
If pictures of God evolve evermore,
If love is affirmed as life’s highest grace
The mystery remains, the sacred expands
To gift compassion’s transforming embrace.

When masks of God both age and die

When masks of God both age and die,
With intervening deities,
As doctrines lose their rigid hold

There I am alone, yet not alone,

Reimagining God: The Faith Journey of a Modern Heretic

He imagines a new spirituality, one that blends a relationship to the natural world with a celebration of the rich inheritance of human culture.
