Crosswalk America

Recommended Posts

A number of weeks ago this group came and talked with our congregation. They are a group that is taking their "proclamations" of progressive and inclusive Christianity across the country. http://www.crosswalkamerica.org

 

I had assumed they were visiting liberal or at least mainline protestant demoninations.

However, I was wrong. This is really quite remarkable (even though I am pretty certain it isn't the norm for them):

This is quite moving ,des. The photographs are priceless. Perhaps this gives us some indication of what Jesus meant by saying "love your enemies".

There are at least *two* Crosswalks having to do with religion.

 

I believe you must have joined up

with http://www.crosswalk.com. This particular group declares someting that sounds like a literal

view of the Bible--- a virgin birth, inerrant scriptures, a literal trinity, etc. From your short time on

the group, I would not think you would mix too well with this! I just did a little lurking! YIKES.

 

 

http://www.crosswalkamerica.org does not have a forum. If it did, I doubt you would be

kicked off, since it was started by some UCC members (I think, at least one). UCC is the

most liberal/progressive of Christian demonimations, allows the ordination of gays and lesbians,

and is not creedal (iow, there is no statement of what you must believe). Here and there, however, there are conservative denominations, since there is no central authority. This group is attempting to walk across

the US (from Phoenix) passing by and talking with and interacting with as many people as possible

giving them a different inclusive vision of Christianity.

Here is a summary of the Phoenix Affirmations: http://www.crosswalkamerica.org/pa.htm

Thanks for the link loveapple, but I have no desire to post at their forum. I'm sure I'd get tossed off pretty quickly. ;)

 

I'm just surprised that as often as I use their online resournces that I've never noticed it. Probably too early in the morning with not enough coffee. :rolleyes:

I lurked there last night. I would not be welcome either. OTOH, I couldn't knowingly

participate in a conservative forum just to rock the boat. (I know some of you entered

it not knowing). I don't see anything wrong with using an online Bible, a Bible is a Bible.

But I wouldn't go there just to annoy them.
