Sunday Homilies for Progressives

 

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.
