Sunday Homilies for Progressives

Series Created By Mike Rivage-Seul (127 articles.) (View How Many People Read This)

 

My goal is to help progressives see the relevance of the Judeo-Christian tradition to their daily lives and the issues of the day. I would also like to help pastors generate ideas for their own Sunday reflections. The perspective here will be informed by liberation theology and current scripture scholarship.

 

I began this series of homilies fifteen months ago when I started blogging.

 

You can access the earlier entries under the "Sunday Homilies" button on my blog site @ http://www.mikerivageseus.wordpress.com/
