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.

From the Heart

All wisdom traditions understand what it means to speak from the heart.  But with the veneration of science and technology that exists today, it is increasingly difficult to hear one’s heart-voice.  That something can be true without being analytical, quantifiable, measurable or reproducible amounts to heresy in the religion of science.  And yet, this truth has always been understood.  Perhaps you remember reading, a long time ago:

Voici mon secret.  Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur.  L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Here is my secret.  It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

From “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint Exupéry
