Our UU Progressive Christian Fellowship is currently meeting on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. with a seminar/study model at the home of Mike Morse and Sea Raven. We are studying the 1996 bombshell, The Five Gospels by The Jesus Seminar. This book renewed the modern Quest for the Historical Jesus and all the ensuing controversy about who Jesus was, and what we can know about what he said and did. All are welcome. For more information, please contact Sea Raven ().
The UU Progressive Christian Fellowship is the name of UUCF's Christian Group, which is a member of the larger network of the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship. We meet for Christian worship grounded in progressive Christian theology. We are followers, not worshipers of Jesus; we explore the meaning of a Cosmic Christ that embodies the UU Principles and respects the fourth source of Unitarian Universalism: "Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves."
Progressive, 21st century Christian thought is not bound to pre-modern, pre-enlightenment beliefs, but incorporates post-modern cosmology into spiritual experience and practice. Rather than focusing on the belief requirements of traditional Christianity, our UU Progressive Christian Fellowship explores the progressive Christian movement of the present day. We are followers, not worshipers of Jesus; we explore the meaning of a Cosmic Christ that embodies the UU Principles and respects the fourth source of Unitarian Universalism: “Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.” By concentrating on the life and teachings of the historical Jesus we seek to create and live within the paradigm of distributive justice-compassion.
