The Progressive Christian Alliance

I'd love for you to check out this website: The Progressive Christian Alliance.  I really dig it.

Lots of great article, resources, videos and links.  It's nice to be reminded that there are many, many Christians supporting progressive values in the world.

Their website reads:
Jesus’s central message is about radical inclusion, thus we welcome anyone to participate in our fellowship without judgment or forcing them to conform to our “likeness” or affirm our creeds in order to be accepted. We invite and offerall a place at the table – no exceptions.
Faith is not about concrete answers, religious absolutes, creeds, or dogma. Faith is about the search for understanding, the raising of important questions, the open honesty of having doubt, and the realization that no one has it all completely right nor does any human hold all the answers. We seek to follow the advice found in 1st Thessalonians 5:21, which is to “seek truth out in all things and hold firmly onto that which is good.” Religious absolutes of dogma, legalism, and strict doctrine become stumbling blocks and “litmus tests” for who is “in” and who is “out” of the circle of God’s grace. These false tests that Jesus never required get in the way of truly following Jesus and his teachings.
The site features a great little vignette shared by Dr. Marcus Borg - a discussion of Christianity as a "WAY," not just a religious system.
