Your donations enable us to continue transforming progressive Christian leadership and to create resources that nurture our faith journeys. If everyone reading this right now gives just $40, we will reach our goal of $70,000 by the end of the year. Some can give more, some less. We invite you to give as you are able.

Our actions, leadership, resources, curricula, and liturgies have been easing the pain, suffering and degradation inherent in society today. For 20 years ProgressiveChristianity.org has offered FREE resources (everything from music to liturgy) while growing an international network of people like you searching for and building community. We do all of this with a focus on spiritual practice, sacred community and positive social transformation.

Thank you for partnering with us! Donate Here

Prayer’s Purpose for Progressives

 
Prayer invites us to quiet our spirits,
to quell the distractions that otherwise avert our attention
from virtues to banalities of existence.
Prayer allows us to listen
to what is truly significant to our lives,
and to intentionally envision
how we can live life
with more integrity, gratitude, compassion, and grace.
Prayer empowers us for peaceful living,
asking us to consider the needs of others
as well as our own,
and calling us to live nonviolently
with loving-kindness and conviction
in the face of life’s trials and turmoil.
Prayer is the gift of spirit we give to ourselves
so that our lives may be a gift of service
to others and the divine.
Prayer reminds us of the sacred,
and connects us to it.

– Rev. Bret S. Myers, 10/28/2019
