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.

Words for Prayer

 
More than 1200 years ago, the Islamic saint Rabia of Basra wrote:

In my soul there is a temple, a shrine, a mosque, a church where I kneel.

Prayer should bring us to an altar where no walls or names exist…

(from “Love Poems from God”, trans. Daniel Ladinsky)

 
Rabia was a female Sufi saint who suffered a life of physical and sexual abuse and yet managed to leave us a legacy of amazing poetry.  She looked beyond the specifics of her circumstances and wrote of timeless truths.  Prayer can do that.
