Liberal Christian Resources On The Web


Recommended Posts

Copy of post to PCNBritain Message Board

 

I've been meaning to do this for some time, but at last it's done. I've put together a webpage with links to a number of sites which I find that I'm frequently refering to. It's there for my own benifit, but I thought it may be of interest to other PCN members hence this message. You can find it at Liberal Christian Resources

OK, here's my list

 

World Network of Religious Futurists

 

Simply stated, the World Network of Religious Futurists exists as a leadership development ministry to advance the future of religion by empowering people to think creatively and critically about the future of society, and to reinvent their ministry in light of those new contexts.

 

Sea of Faith Network - UK

 

If the state of religion today seems to be 'all at sea', inviting the angry rejection of its claims as dangerous delusions, what could be better than to explore that vast sea in all its dangerous storms, its profound and mysterious depths and its serenity and beauty?

 

For Network members, all matters of religion are rooted in history, culture and language. None of them can validly claim divine authority. For many members of Sea of Faith this realization goes hand-in-hand with a deep appreciation that religion is a tremendous human resource.

 

National Religious Partnership for the Environment

 

Guided by biblical teaching, the Partnership seeks to encourage people of faith to weave values and programs of care for God's creation throughout the entire fabric of religious life:

 

Liturgy, worship and prayer;

Theological study, the education of future clergy, and of the young;

The stewardship of our homes, lands and resources;

Protecting the lives of our communities and health of our children;

Our social ministry to the poor and vulnerable who have first and preferential claim on our conscience; and

Bringing the perspectives of moral values and social justice before public policymakers.

 

GLBT ISSUES

 

Whosoever: An Online Magazine for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Christians

 

Our Vision: Whosoever Ministries, Inc. exists to provides a safe and sacred space for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Christians to reclaim, rekindle and grow their relationship with God.

 

Soulforce

Soulforce is committed to freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people from religious and political oppression through relentless nonviolent resistance. As we enter our second decade of work, we invite you to join our movement.

 

CATHOLIC REFORM

 

Future Church

 

Our Mission: FutureChurch seeks changes that will provide all Roman Catholics the opportunity to participate fully in Church life and leadership

 

International Movement We Are Church

 

The international movement We are Church, founded in Rome in 1996, is committed to the renewal of the Roman Catholic Church on the basis of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) and the theological spirit developed from it.

Do you have any of your own Progressive Christian web pages? Then list them here to tell others! or do you know of any other good ones then list them as well! Thanks!

 

My own is www.hope-quest.com. Writings done or in progress, with three basic premises: 1. greatness of God (i.e. greater than any formula), hope (how we shape the future) and the goodness of the world (nature and consciousness).

Thank you for posting these! I love the bumper stickers. I've been looking for one similar to the Straight, not Narrow. Trying to figure out how to design it.

Hi everyone!

 

I came across this link yesterday. I have only read the first sermon and it is brilliant. It really shows me that PC is the path for me! There are 6 sermons in the series. They are individual PDF files.

 

I look forward to your comments on them. I will read them overnight and post my thoughts as well.

 

Here is the link http://www.hunter.uca.org.au/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=18&Itemid=39

 

Just scroll down to the Progressive Christianity Sermons! :)

Thanks for posting this series of articles, Spiritseeker. They are all excellent; highlighting the points of PC. I especially appreciated how the author opens with real-life vignettes before progressing to how these points are and can be instrumental in making changes "down uder".

Hi progressive,

 

Thanks for the recommendations. There are some excellent blogs and reviews on the Beatitudes site, with many women contributing. In the news section I saw that Marcus Borg has another book coming out this fall, Speaking Christian, sounds interesting.
