A Progressive Christian Voice
 
Pastor Joseph Holub
 
 

     During my last decade of ministry before retirement,  I encountered many people who were looking for something other than the traditional Christianity in which they grew up with its emphasis upon doctrines, dogmas and creeds.  Rather than a religion that dwells on correct beliefs now for salvation, defined as afterlife, later, many are looking for something that is profoundly transformative for this life.  As one person put it to me, "I am looking for an evolutionary spiritual path that can shape me into being more fully and completely human now!"


     The late Marcus Borg in his book
Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time indicates that the word "believe" did not originally mean giving mental assent to doctrines and creeds, but its Latin and Greek roots mean "to give ones heart to."  To believe in Jesus means to give one's total being to following in the way of Jesus; to live the Jesus life in the world.  It is my conviction that to be mentored in the spiritual path of Jesus is to fufill one's humanity in the fullest sense.  This theme is the common thread that runs through the various writings on this website.
