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.

Christmas the World Over

 
Christmas rituals have evolved over the centuries, interacting with local cultures and stories to produce distinctive traditions in different parts of the world.  When we incorporate these traditions in our own seasonal festivities, our view is widened and we experience again the story’s universality: the expectant waiting, the search for shelter, the miraculous birth of a baby.  We love our own traditions and we learn from those of others.  The story that inspired them all is the same.
