Next Meetup

Organizing at Church: Issues at the Intersection of Religion and Politics
We are proud to announce that we will be at the Left Coast Forum. Please see their website for more info and to register: https://www.leftcoastforum.org What is the relationship between spirituality and activism? What is the role of faith in politics? From abolition and the civil rights movement to anti-war activism and the Poor People’s Campaign, people of faith and their institutions have been at the forefront of social change. Concern for the earth and the welfare of humanity is at the heart of an aware and mature spirituality. Even Christians are discovering God’s cry for justice in the Bible. This panel will discuss the legal, ideological, ethical, and practical implications of spiritual and religious activism.

What we're about

Bible Study for Progressives is a show where moderates, liberals and leftists of all faiths and ideologies come to together to discuss scripture, spirituality, and politics. Once a month we will consider a Bible reading from the Revised Common Lectionary. Most of our Bible studies we will use articles from my blog: http://www.modernlectionaries.blogspot.com . We may also consider other sources, both ancient and modern. The host will primarily serve as a moderator to ensure that all participants have to opportunity to share. Our meetups will be on a Saturday but will not necessarily be any particular Saturday in the month. The date will be determined by the lectionary reading the host selects to study and write about. I hope to meet and get to know everyone.
