The symposium seeks to provide both a forum for lively discussion and debate
integrated with planning sessions for Greater Boston. The two-day event will
feature intellectual discussions on the History of Christian Progressivism,
Jesus' Call to Peacemaking, the Theological Support for Gay Marriage.

We will also hold interactive sessions that seek to develop a
cross-denominational, cross-tradition Progressive Christian Council that
will work towards a public policy agenda regionally and nationally.
