Bishop John Shelby Spong
June 16, 1931 – September 12, 2021

Bishop Spong provided a much needed place for those of us who did not connect with traditional theology.
We love you Bishop Spong. You will be missed!


Prayer is our heart speaking.  In most of our churches, we get an abundance of head speaking, which makes the balance afforded by prayer time all the more important.  At its best, progressive language for prayers is lyrical and beautiful; most important of all, it rings true.  Those are the prayers that help people put into words what they are feeling, help deepen their experience of the Sacred in the moment.  Good prayer writing is a gift.
