is nothing without YOU – everything that we do is for you. That is our purpose, providing resources for people like you who are exploring their spirituality from a progressive Christian perspective.

We are also a non-profit working within the constraints of a relatively tight budget;  without your support, we truly could literally be little to nothing. So, here is the ask: if you are in a position to donate any amount, please consider doing so. Even better, consider making your gift a sustaining gift (choose Recurring Donation); it helps provide a much needed, stable, financial foundation from which we can continue to grow into the future.
