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 6

 
The symbols we choose to focus on become planted deep within us.  In the liturgical season of Lent, and especially during Holy Week, we think primarily of the cross and crown of thorns… outward evidence of a humiliating and painful death.  But other symbols appear during this time, like the towel and basin of water on Maundy Thursday.  It is a useful exercise to imagine how Christianity might have developed differently had the towel and basin been our primary symbol, rather than the cross.  Service rather than sacrifice.  What symbols carry special meaning for you?
