This page reflects my exploration of progressive Christianity, which relates to traditional Christianity but is quite a different view, though both share a common origin and message. It embraces interfaith dialogue, which is why this page is titled Progressive Spirituality rather than Progressive Christianity.

Scriptural literacy promotes an understanding of scriptures (Christian or otherwise) in light of modern scholarship, without rejecting (or blindly asserting) the relevancy of those scriptures.

Personally, I do not see progressive and traditional spirituality as an either/or choice. I choose from these and other sources according to my understanding at any given time, and my understanding evolves over time.
