  1. Justin, I recently discovered your blog via Twitter, and I’ve begun reading through it as I have time. It’s fascinating. I must admit I’m still surprised when I come across Progressive Christians. I was raised fundamentalist, and after years of tension I finally had to leave that religion in my early 30’s. I no longer consider myself a Christian, but I do believe in God and speak to him often, usually thanking him for such everyday things as a safe ride on the Metro. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on liberation theology, and on liberationist movements in other religions. Also, what do you think the place of Progressive Christianity is in a multicultural, multireligious society?

    I encourage you to keep up the good work, and especially the refreshing joy. Peace.

  2. Wow, Justin, I just discovered this blog from your Twitter, and am really encouraged to read the stuff you’re saying. Keep up the good work, man… sounds like you’re currently living what my dream is. Been in urban studies at Moody Seminary in Chicago for a while, but looking at ways to put my convictions into action. I’m originally from AZ, so I’m hoping to get back there and become involved in immigration reform and immigrant outreach in the next couple of months. Always encouraging to hear about someone who’s doing it, you know?
