"what is progressive christianity?" workshop

What is Progressive Christianity, Anyway?

In 1994 there were no organizations, books or scholarly papers that used the term “progressive Christianity,” except in a historical reference. Today “progressive Christianity” is a common term in the Christian culture. It is loved, appreciated (and hated), but it is there. There are over a dozen national organizations that have Progressive Christian in their name, vision statement or self description. What does it mean? Where did it come from? Where is it going?

Rev. Fred Plumer is president of the Center for Progressive Christianity.
Recommended Texts – John Spong: A New Chrisitianity for a New World, (Harper Collins); Hal Taussig: A New Spiritual Home: Progressive Christianity at the Grass Roots, (Polebridge Press)
