What Is Progressive Christianity?

Published by under Meetings

At this year’s conference, Margaret Mayman reflected on the conference theme from the perspective of what she called progressive Christianity.  Fundamentalist religion has been very successful in claiming that its views and beliefs define what it means to be Christian.  Progressive Christianity aims to raise the profile of another sort of religion: one that does not entail a literal reading of the bible or a refusal to accept evolution. Progressive Christianity is similar to, but distinct from, the liberal Christianity out of which the Sea of Faith emerged.  At our meeting on Friday 30 October, we will look at Margaret’s talk (and any ideas from other conference presentations that members are attracted to).
