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.

At Death’s Door: And Other Tales

Printed together with several short inspirational works, At Death’s Door is a fictitious account of a meeting between a dying man and an old fellow who just might be God! Age-old questions are discussed candidly, and modern issues are explored in the light of the gospel of universal love. In this story, philosophy meets theology, and human love meets divine love.

This book represents a departure from the traditional emphasis on sin and punishment, and invites the reader to embrace the deeper truth of the goodness and beauty which grace imbues in every human life!

The verb “to baptize” means “to plunge or immerse”. To be baptized into Christ is to be immersed into both the person and the process who is Jesus Christ. In At Death’s Door and Other Tales, Joe Pugh reveals his long immersion—or perhaps better his and ongoing marination—in the Christ and the Christ Event. I recommend this book. ~ Rev. John J. Newns, St. Ann Parish
