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.

Inspired by Nature

 
Nature provides us with a never-ending source of imagery for the Divine.  Whether it’s adapting ancient words, like St. Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Sun, or writing new poetry, when we want to express awe or humility or deep connection, we look for those evocations in the natural world.  Naturalist and explorer John Muir beautifully expresses this source of inspiration in his little poem “A Summer Reflection”:

I only went out for a walk
and finally concluded to stay out
until sundown,
for going out,
I found,
was really going in.
