“Progressive Christianity”, PG for short, is the Christianity of the 21st century. PG finds it roots in the work of the “Jesus Seminar”, a think-tank of the Westar Institute of the US, which did its work during the late eighties and mid nineties of the 20th century. Our Study Group discusses the many facets of this “new Christianity” mainly via DVD’s of interviews with and lectures by some of the foremost PG Theologians, such as John Shelby Spong, Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. Our two-weekly sessions are open to anyone interested and, since many of the sessions are “stand-alone”, people are welcome to just drop in and join for the evening. We are meeting on alternate Monday nights between 7:00 and 9:00 pm.
This group of 15-20 seekers meets every Tuesday from 7:00-9:00pm to discuss a topic of their choice including; practicing the presence, mindfulness, forgiveness, past lives, life after death, energy healing and every day spirituality to name a few.
At Living Spirit, while we study and follow the teachings and ways of Christ, we also honour and respect other great religions in the world. Every February is Interfaith Harmony month when we invite speakers from other faith perspectives into our worship service to share what they believe with us and then host a Q and A period afterward. We are also part of the Interfaith Network of Calgary which hosts discussions and field trips to Temples, Mosques, Synagogues, Churches and sacred places of worship. We are also a member of the Interfaith Council which seeks to hold joint social projects such as the eradication of poverty and isolation in our city. This group has also hosted and organized an Interfaith Benefit Concert.
