and the News at Progressing Spirit

Progressing Spirit is a leading outlet for intelligent, inclusive, and pioneering exploration of today’s theological, spiritual, political, and social advancements. On a weekly basis, Progressing Spirit challenges one of over thirty of the world’s top thinkers to offer their best insights about what’s happening on the leading edge.
Our commitment to subscribers is to continually deliver fresh, interesting, and thought-provoking commentaries that you will find inspiring, insightful, and sometimes even challenging.

Here are a few authors you can have delivered to your inbox

each week for only $3/month.



Whether it’s about what will happen with the currently declining Church, what new models of intentional spiritual community may look like, or how we take part in the quest for equality and inclusivity, these conversations and many more are deeply explored by best-selling authors, social leaders, theologians, and cutting edge innovators. We look forward to having you in the conversation.
In addition, with your monthly subscription, you will have access to all of Bishop John Shelby Spong’s Archives that include his Articles and Q&As going back to 2003.  This exclusive content is not available anywhere else. In 1991, Bishop John Shelby Spong (June 16, 1931 – September 12, 2021) began offering a subscription-based publication to a growing audience of those seeking his lecturers and best-selling books. Upon his retirement in 2017, that audience was spread around the globe and today’s Progressing Spirit was born as an innovative next step – not to simply find another scholar like Bishop Spong, but to recruit a host of leading thinkers who could amplify ideas and insights about our progressing social, theological, and spiritual world.
