Spiritual Progressives

The folks at the Rockridge Institute (home of framing guru George Lakoff) are hosting in intruiging online conference entitled "Spiritual Progressives: A Dialogue on Values and Building a Movement." Here's the pitch:

If spiritual progressives are to be organized as a political force in this country, the link between their religious and their political principles must be made clear. Many spiritual progressives have a hard time explicitly stating their theological views and linking them to their political views. Many have no idea of the long, distinguished history of liberal religion in America and of the way it has shaped the best parts of the American tradition. Many are not aware of the intimate link between child-rearing, religion and politics.

This dialogue will take up these and many more issues -- the issues that you want to raise.

Sounds pretty interesting -- it will be interesting to see if any interesting conversations emerge.
