Monthly Themes

Every month, Faith Works focuses on a central aspect of progressive Christian identity. Each theme is couched in the question: “What does it mean to be a people of….?” This reminds us that our themes are not just interesting topics but fundamental faith commitments and aspirations that we are called by God to live into.

In the Spring, we invite our subscribers to help us select the themes for the upcoming year.

Below are the monthly themes for the 2017-18 church year, followed by the archived themes from 2016-17. Subscribers have access to the resources from both years.
