Progressive Christianity Part 1: Atheism, Church, and Following Jesus
Progressive Christianity is a vibrant and exciting movement within the faith. Here at CUCC, we claim that no matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. If you are a Christian, an atheist, a Buddhist, a Muslim, LGBTQ, you are welcome to join us. Progressive Christianity claims that Jesus didn’t reject people, and so neither do we. So, if you think Jesus has something to teach you, come join us on the journey. If you think Jesus has something important to offer the world, come join us as we seek to follow Jesus on the path to a more loving and just world.
Progressive Christianity Part 2: The Unity and Sacredness of Life
As Progressive Christians follow Jesus, our hearts and minds expand as we discover the unity and sacredness behind all of life. God invites us to follow Jesus into this unity. But there are dangers lurking. We can gain a false sense of unity if we aren’t intentional about following Jesus. For example, we can create a sense of unity by being against another person or group. The unity that Jesus calls us to is a different kind of unity that’s based on love, a love that extends to even those we call our enemies. Love is the flow of the universe, for God is love. And love is the way to find unity and sacredness of all life.
