An Experiment in Adult Online Ed: The Basics of Progressive Christianity


For anyone who would like to participate in a year-round

online discussion of the basics of progressive Christianity...


We are a community on the go and travel is big part of our lives.  But ongoing adult Christian education is also important, in fact, it is vital to our ongoing spiritual growth & development.


Sooooooo, to make it really easy for anyone to participate in a class on the basics of a progressive - liberal - modern approach to our ancient faith tradition, Fr. Charles has set up a simple blog where we can talk to each other online.  This will serve as the platform or classroom for our class beginning April 1st.  In addition, I will invite those who are in town to meet with me from time to time.


TO SIMPLY READ WHAT HAS BEEN WRITTEN ON THE BLOG, please type or cut & paste the following into the address line of your web browser, e.g., Apple Safari or Windows Explorer, etc:  thebasicsofourfaithclass.blogspot.com   (the basics of our faith class . blogspot . com - without any spaces). TO PARTICIPATE, YOU MUST SET UP A FREE GOOGLE.COM ACCOUNT & log in before writing a post for the class to read.


The blog site is nothing fancy, but it should do the job.  I have posted instructions concerning how the class will work.  Hopefully this will answer most of your questions.


Notice that you can click on the "Subscribe" icon on the right hand side to receive an email notice whenever someone submits a note or "post" on the blog.  This way we can keep up with each other & the current conversation.


Use the little pencil icon to post a note of your own.


If you are not used to using a computer for educational purposes, please give it a try.  I have been doing it for years and it works pretty well.  It's not as much fun as sitting down for coffee with each other in person, but it is better than no conversation at all.  I think you will find that it helps you think and reflect……and that's the whole point.


Hope to hear from a whole bunch of you!  :)
