God’s Love is Written on Our Hearts
Progressive Christianity

Our next-door neighbor has a butterfly sanctuary in her backyard, where monarchs come to lay their eggs and caterpillars munch their way to transformation inside the chrysalis. In the butterfly soup of their true being, they follow a code written within to emerge and unfold quivering wings.   Milkweed seeds float on the breeze, coming to rest on a bed of earth. From the seed buried, dying, and breaking open, the green blade of new life rises. Following the inner code of life, the plant expands to host the egg, the caterpillar, and the chrysalis. Through its leaves ingested, the milkweed s ..read more

Praise for Singing Fierce Gratitude “Into our current topsy-turvy, whirling dervish of a world, Tina Datsko de Sánchez offers a miracle: the resurrection of Rumi and Hafiz’s voices.

Protest
Progressive Christianity
by Carl Krieg
3d ago
In the academic comfort of a library study alcove, I look out over the central green at Dartmouth College, where one week ago storm, troopers in full riot gear armed with batons moved across this space in the eerie hours of post-dusk darkness, forcefully breaking up a small, peaceful gathering of students and faculty supporters and tearing down a six tent encampment prohibited by college rules. An armored vehicle was standing by if needed by the troops. Today, as students study in library halls, they sit by signs they have made, calling for peace in Palestine and changes in both College attitu ..read more

Rebelling … or nothing at all.
Progressive Christianity

  Last Thursday, April 11th, shareholders of the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) met in Etobicoke at the Toronto Congress Centre (TCC). Close to the airport, an easy drive from downtown, and with tons of meeting rooms and event spaces, the TCC is a much sought after venue. I’ve attended conferences with some awesome speakers, met people I’d only previously known online, stood behind one of its podiums while sharing my own thoughts with others, and managed to get into some very interesting conversations with others who agreed with my thinking or were anxious to tell me how much they disdained m ..read more

Book Review: God After Deconstruction
Progressive Christianity

  God After Deconstruction By Thomas Jay Oord and Tripp Fuller SacraSage Press, 2024 Review by Jim Burklo In the 12th century, the Spanish Jewish philosopher Maimonides wrote “The Guide for the Perplexed” in order to help the intellectually-oriented to find meaning in the Hebrew scriptures deeper than a literal reading could yield.  “God After Deconstruction” is a guide for perplexed evangelical and fundamentalist Christians who seek a kinder, saner understanding and practice of the faith.  Its authors themselves have “deconstructed” from supernaturalist, exclusivist, and triump ..read more

Who is Jesus to You?
Progressive Christianity
by Brandan Robertson
1w ago
Many of us are introduced to Jesus at a young age, and the version of him we initially encounter is quite often an incomplete version of the historical figure. Over time, many have begun to question those curated snapshots of the Nazarene and have rediscovered Jesus as a man, a mystic, a wisdom teacher, and a blueprint for how to be a better human being, among other things. In this volume, you’ll read a variety of perspectives on Jesus from authors, academics, theologians, mystics, pastors, musicians, and even a former reality TV star and Muslim scholar. Featuring contributions by: Gregory Boy ..read more

Beyond Naiveté: The ‘Ideal’ Gospel – Part III
Progressive Christianity
by John Bennison
2w ago
  We live in a world of what I sometimes describe as disproportionate parity, where the ancient version of justice (lex talionis) that’s still widely practiced today provides justification for an excessive retaliatory response. On the world stage, we are currently witnessing this with Israel’s war on Hamas terrorists who slaughtered 1,200 innocents, with Israel’s destruction of Gaza and a death toll that currently exceeds 34,000 innocent Palestinians. The heap of dead bodies is excused as unfortunate “collateral damage,” with the justification that the offender who initiated the latest cr ..read more
