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.

Good Sites

There's been a recent spat of articles on the "new atheism" and what that challenge represents in terms of religious faith. These include Karen Armstrong, John Spong, and Miroslav Volf . They all focus on the way that small conceptions of God need to be broken down.

"The choice between the theism of the church and the atheism of those who reject the God of the church is to me a sterile and lifeless choice. Such a meeting between believers and atheists might lead us to examine what Paul Tillich called “the God beyond the gods of men and women.”- John Spong

Some other sites: The progressive Christian radio show I help put together with some friends now has a website. We'll be posting podcasts of the show in the future so check it out. Also adding a Disciples of Christ pastor's site that includes some good pieces on society and the church.

Oh, thanks for pointing those out. I so approve of Spong's approach; atheists are bollards in the road for hunting towards truth, or something like that.

You might be interested in some of the conversation on LoFiTribe about the Spong article. It's taken a bit of a tangent, but one that is still applicable.

I'll have to check out the others. Thanks for the links!
