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 2

 
Of all the symbols we encounter during Lent, none is more recognizable than the cross.  Even as it is claimed by all Christians, the meanings that are attached to it are many.  For some, it means salvation; for others, the power of unconditional love; for still others, the meeting of the heavenly dimension (vertical) with the earthly (horizontal).  For Tillich, a symbol always “points beyond itself” to a mystery that cannot be fully explained.  What is the meaning of the cross to you, as a progressive Christian?
