Brainstorm a progressive religious blog conference.
Back in December I heard about early plans for a progressive religious blog conference, an interfaith gathering of bloggers open to theological and liturgical liberals and politically left-of-center religious people — all the people excluded, in other words, from last fall's highly successful "GodBlogCon." What a great idea! But great ideas come to nothing all the time; it takes a lot of work to make an idea a reality. Slowly but surely, it looks like the "Progressive Faith Blog-Con" is becoming real.
The conference will be July 14 through 16 at Montclair State University in New Jersey. One very positive sign is that Velveteen Rabbi is coordinating the workshop slots — and she is looking for fellow brainstormers. Other conference supporters include the extraordinary Real Live Preacher and my fellow Blog Heaven member, the Zen-Humanist Woodmoor Village. If you have passion for this kind of organizing and fraternizing, do volunteer to help.
