Succinctly stated, what is the Progressive agenda? I don’t mean agenda in a negative way. What do you hope to accomplish?
“The progressive agenda”? Well, there’s not one. Each eldership has its own agenda. Each writer has his own agenda. I can only speak for myself — not for a movement.
My agenda is pretty simple —
1. Teach the gospel
2. Teach a deeper, richer theology
3. Teach leadership principles for elders and other church leaders
That’s about it. Of course, my view of the gospel differs from the gospel as taught by conservatives in important ways. I’m persuaded that if they’ll understand the gospel as I teach it, unity will be easy. And the last 100 years have shown that the gospel as taught in the 20th Century Churches of Christ leads to division after division.
Therefore, one result of my agenda would be, I pray, to restore the Churches of Christ to their Restoration roots as a true unity movement — not just among the Churches of Christ, but among the churches of Christ.
