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.

The “End Times” Scenario

Creation through God, the Divine Force — humans look to the facts
As I write this, even as you read it — those are certain human acts

Our existence, for sure, known to us through our finite lives on Earth
Born into God’s Earthly kingdom by way of a “miraculous” human birth

A Genesis account written poetically in homage to God’s creative love
Ancient peoples looking skyward to see their God somewhere “up above”

As grass withers and flowers fade, humans envision the end of mortal life
Many look to the Bible to allay their fears and reduce existential strife

Some folks jump to Revelation, the Apocalypse, to reveal what will happen
Wanting an assured crystal ball of certainty, hoping their hearts will gladden

Millennium, seven years, beast, Armageddon — even the word “rapture”
Terms of so-called truth emanating from a final book granted little stature

A book written several millennia ago during an ancient unscientific time
Can one assumed author say how humanity will go through its decline?

An author’s vision-dream taken as a literal revelation of what God will send?
My divine-given rationality cries out that such concrete reasoning may end

The forces of nature and our corporate living will surely go on to tomorrow
The Creator’s spirit is in control — no need to worry and no need for sorrow

verse by Randall Wehler, 2014
