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.

Epiphany

 
January 6 is traditionally celebrated as Twelfth Night, or the Feast of the Epiphany.  It’s one of the oldest celebrations of the Christian Church, but over the years the particular traditions associated with it have diverged, just as the strands of the church have diverged.  In Western Christianity, Epiphany is associated with the visit of the Magi; in Eastern Christianity, with Jesus’ baptism.  In some denominations, it is celebrated as the end of the Christmas season; in others, it is hardly noticed at all!  Traditions are like that, and we hold on to the ones that, for whatever reason, are meaningful to us.
