here's something important. allen brill at The Right Christians has started a progressive christian meetup. it's the third thursday of the month, and i think i might be the ONLY PERSON IN PHILADELPHIA signed up. maybe you should come to the meeting (or tell your friends to) even if you're not a progressive christian. for example, if you're a christian wanting to think about progressivism, or vice versa. or if you're a progressive wanting to talk to christians. or whatever.
signup is at http://rightchristians.meetup.com/.
