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 5

 
When we read words written by others, we often don’t know the context in which the words were written.  Sometimes the story behind the words is the best part. 

That’s certainly true when you’re reading sacred scripture like the Bible, and it’s why modern Bible scholarship is so important to progressive Christianity.  It’s also true of the liturgies that we publish.  Look for the story behind the words.
