We need your donations to continue affecting Christian leadership and to positively transform this world. If everyone reading this right now gave just $15, we would reach our goal of $70,000 by the end of the year.

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 been changing the world by encouraging spiritually minded individuals and organizations to adopt a revitalized faith.

Most of what we offer, we offer for free. And that includes thousands of articles, books, liturgy and community resources, music, reviews, curricula, and a thriving and growing international network of people like you searching and building community, all with a focus on spiritual practice, sacred community and positive social transformation.

ProgressiveChristianity.org is a global portal for hundreds of dedicated volunteer authors that simply want the movement to grow. For the same amount one spends on coffee each month, you can help sustain an organization dedicated to spreading the word of a compassionate and informed Christianity. Please help us keep ProgressiveChristianity.org online and growing. Thank you.

Progressive Lectionary


Reading Bishop Spong and Marcus Borg primarily, along with “Ministry Matters” and other readings, has lead me to believe if we attach the “Common Lectionary” to our Hebrew founders (as Bishop Spong has done) we have a better shot at arriving at the inner soul end point we desire.

This Lectionary is based on the belief that the new fundamentals should be taught.

Click on the below sample to view and/or download the full Lectionary.

Below is a Creed and Eucharist responses along with what I consider essential scriptures:


I believe in God, creator of the universe and in Jesus, along with all mankind, who were conceived in love, born of woman, suffered at the hands of evil, and were killed. Those spirits arose into all mankind and filled them with love. God will embrace our actions of love
I believe mankind is the universal church.
I believe in the goodness of all mankind.
I believe in the healing power of good works.
I believe the righteous soul lives in our hearts forever.

Words for the Eucharist

An empty stomach needs a filling morsel
A parched throat needs a satisfying drink
