We might not ever be as successful, as big, or as powerful, but I think we can do beautiful things. A progressive community of faith serves the whole community - the community of faith by pointing to the poor, social justice, the environment, and postpartum life; progressives by connecting them to faith and tradition; and everybody else by showing the real possibilities that faith transcends conservatism. The world desperately needs us to persevere with grace and do our best to serve these functions.
