A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Christianity in Action

"At the invitation of Jimmy Carter nine heads of Baptist denominations met recently and “affirmed their desire to speak and work together to create an authentic and genuine prophetic Baptist voice in these complex times.

They committed themselves to their “obligations as Christians to promote peace with justice, to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, care for the sick, welcome the strangers among us, and promote religious liberty and respect for religious diversity.”

Carter, still bringing people together for the good after all these years. I haven't posted on William S Coffin's recent death, but Chuck Currie has links on the life of this prohetic voice from his antiwar activism to his work on glbt inclusion in the church.

This summer the Presbyterians and Episcopalians will have church conventions. A number of major issues confront both churches, so religious progressives in both denominations will have sites which will follow the affairs of their respective gatherings.
