Because I have a heart for people leaping out in faith in order to change the world for the better and PLGRM sounds freaking awesome.
PLGRM . . . is a quarterly magazine – which WILL be published in electronic and paper form – that explores the people and ideas associated with the “new spiritual awakening” as suggested by Diana Butler Bass in her book, Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening.
PLGRM . . . shines a spotlight on the lives and interests of those no longer satisfied with Modern Christianity as they search for a more authentic spiritual expression.
PLGRM . . . is bold and principled, unafraid to take firm stances on dicey issues.
PLGRM . . . explores inter-religious/inter-spiritual ideas and practices, the work and convictions surrounding creation care, and in the pursuit of peace and equality (with particular focus on combating violence, poverty, and oppression).
PLGRM . . . celebrates a variety of voices – some humorous, some painful, some cutting, some joyful; voices that share an earnestness that this journey towards a new spiritual awakening is vital and must be taken seriously.
PLGRM . . . has been created to inspire the spiritually dissatisfied to begin crafting new structures of their religious and spiritual existence.
