ProgressiveChristianity.org 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.

Women Teachers and the Resurrection

 
“Without women preachers, we would have no knowledge of the resurrection.” – Jürgen Moltmann

Christianity has a long history of oppressing women, but the Easter story shows us how inauthentic that is to the Gospel. Jesus had women followers who likely funded much of his ministry. It’s safe to say that without women, Jesus would not have been able to survive in his ministry and that if women hadn’t gone to the tomb, no one would have even known about Easter. Until all Christians fully embrace women in the full life and leadership of the Church, we continue to deny the radical inclusivity of Jesus’ ministry.
