Thank you for your support in 2007, and to solicit your help for our
work in the year ahead. We are working on several exciting initiatives that
will directly benefit progressive Christian congregations, small groups and
individuals, and we will need your help if we are to be successful in our goal
of broadly raising the visibility and understanding of progressive Christianity
throughout the country and world.
What's ahead for next year?
· TCPC website. We are planning to continue to greatly
increase the quality, quantity, and diversity of resources available to
churches and individuals through the TCPC website. We will be adding to our
content in the areas of creative liturgy and worship; sermon support; and study
guides and other resources for adult, young adult, young, and childhood church
· Liturgy Project. The Center for Progressive
Christianity is now embarking on a new Liturgy Project which will positively
transform worship services in churches all over the world. The Liturgy
Project will contact hundreds of churches to collect a wide variety of
litanies, hymn lyrics, dramas, chants, art, and design concepts. These
materials will then be organized and published on our website and in printed,
CD, or DVD form.
· Largely Increase the Public Visibility of Progressive Christianity. Through the media, our events, our website, and educational materials.
· Adding administrative and web
We currently employ one very part time administrator. Any other work we
do is volunteered time.
· Encourage the growth of Local
Groups. We want to encourage the growth and development of local groups
by providing more resources, study guides and materials.
· Hold more National Conferences, regional
gatherings, retreats, lectures and events. In 2007 we did not have the finances
or staff to convene our normal national events and we missed opportunities to
further the movement as a result. We plan to rectify that in 2008.
· Increase the participation in Pluralism Sunday.We
consider our first Pluralism Sunday a tremendous success but we know that many
other congregations will benefit from some of the experiences that were common
with the participants.
