Progessive Christianity Reading Group

by | Jan 23, 2024

First Church’s Progressive Christianity Reading Group will read/discuss William Sloane Coffin’s small collection of essays, “The Heart Is a Little to the Left”, written 25 years ago, still “a powerful antidote to the religious right with a clarion call to passive intellectuals and dispirited liberals to reenter the fray, based on an unabashedly Christian view of social justice.” Coffin served as chaplain of Yale University for 18 years, Senior Pastor of Riverside Church, NY., and President of SANE/FREEZE: Campaign for Global Security. Jailed as a civil rights “Freedom Rider”, indicted by the government in the Benjamin Spock conspiracy trial, he attained popular notoriety as Reverend Sloan in the Doonesbury comic strip.

We will cover the 81-page collection in two sessions, Feb. 8th and 15th during 1pm ZOOM meeting. Buy used on-line. New participants are welcome to join us. Contact Bonnie Beckonchrist for info at bbeckonchrist@gmail.com
