I caught up with a few of our favorite progressive Christian thought-leaders at the American Academy of Religion convention last month, and invited them to reflect on the season of Advent. Deborah at the Progressive Christian Portal at Patheos is posting one video response each week as the church waits and anticipates the coming of God.

This week, we hear from Ted Jennings, Professor at Chicago Theological Seminary and Methodist Clergy, who poses the challenge and promise of Advent.  I got to record this video at an amazing dinner & late night discussion with Ted & Jack Caputo.  It was a very early nerdy Christmas present for me.  Just know Jack & Diana Butler Bass are coming soon to the video series…. so subscribe to the Progressive Christian channel & get them each week.
