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.

Lent, Week 1

 
Lent starts Ash Wednesday, February 17th this year.  But part of the power of ritual, no matter the nuances of one’s theological stance, is the reaffirmation, over and over, of the cycles of life and our participation in them.  Lent gives us the opportunity to delve into aspects of life we would often prefer to ignore: suffering, injustice, death.  There is never new life without the death of what went before, so we begin our Lenten journey with gratitude.
