Progressive Christianity on the march

I have to say, this is really exciting me. It sounds like finally someone is picking up where MLK left off (or was made to leave off).

"Crosswalk America"

"CrossWalk America is part of an emerging Christian movement - one that joyously embraces the love of God, neighbor and self (Jesus' core values). We stand for:
• openness to other faiths
• care for the earth and its ecosystems
• valuing artistic expression in all its forms
• radical inclusiveness of all people - including God's lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender (lgbt) community
• opposing the commingling of Church and State
• promoting the values of rest and recreation, prayer and reflection
• embracing both faith and science in the pursuit of truth

If you share in the spirit of these beliefs - Welcome Home! We invite you to learn more about CrossWalk America and our upcoming "Walk Across America 2006" by exploring further our web site."


Obviously I agree with what they stand for; but I'm especially interested in the idea of walking across the entire country. That's a move that's needed to happen, I've been thinking for a while. If you're going to march, then MARCH. I think I'd like to sign up, at least for part of it.

Hey, cool blog! Just got around to taking a peel in here after you left your comment on my blog last night. And I totally agree with you on the Progressive Christina thing.

Kind of off topic, but funny - my co-blogger (Book Stud) and I often do a "worship swap" -I go to her synagogue and she comes to my church, and hilarity ensues. (Dude, the Jewish songs are so much more fun.) She accidentally learned that I could read hebrew the first time we did this and I thought her head would explode.

Anyway, nice to "virtually" meet you!

I like the idea of a "worship swap." (Sounds like an interesting synagogue--I don't remember our songs as being all that fun! Come to think of it, not so much remembering songs at all...well, maybe in Hebrew school...)
