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.

Confession

 
As children, we learn the “magic words” please and thank you.  They do indeed smooth the way for us throughout our lives.  What do you suppose would happen if children also learned to say I’m sorry regularly?  Perhaps as adults they would be more inclined to mend the fences that they inevitably break.  Formal church liturgy has translated these basic building blocks of civility into Confession, Intercession and Thanksgiving.  But at their heart they are still the magic words: I’m sorry, please, and thank you.
