For years FCC has supported the organization Progressive Christians Uniting (PCU). This May our Peace and Justice committee has invited PCU’s Executive Director, Rev. Peter Laarman, to speak in worship and hold a forum afterwards. PCU has invited prominent progressive Christian speaker and author Diana Butler Bass to speak on 4/29 at the Hollywood United Methodist Church at as part of their annual fundraising efforts. Tickets are $40 for individuals, $70 for couples, and $20 for students. Please join Andy Schwiebert (who recently joined the board of PCU) and others to hear Diana Butler Bass speak about her new book,Christianity After Religion?? Her book explores what the national decline in the mainline protestant church (and others) means, and what positive new changes are afoot with new expressions of Christianity, among them, the emergent church.
