Time is running out in 2017 to help ProgressiveChristianity.org. We are sustained by donations averaging about $25. If everyone reading this right now gave just $15, we would reach our goal of $60,000 by the end of the year. We are a small non-profit with a very small staff trying to do big things in this world. We keep our site free of external ads so that you can trust and rely on what you see and experience here.

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.

When Christmas Comes

1. When Christmas comes it brings great joy;

This story of a baby boy;

The birth of life – divine event

That tells us all of God’s intent

To be at one with human life,

In all its beauty, all its strife.


2. This infant boy of human birth –

A miracle of Mother Earth;

He has announced the Gospel News

That God, unknown, would always choose

To be at one with humankind,

Prompting our love from heart and mind.


3. His humble birth we celebrate;

On Jesus’ love we meditate;

We ponder on the unity

Of God with our humanity;

Emmanuel – Our Christmas song,

In godly love we all belong.


Tune:  The First Nowell
