What is the state of religion, including progressive Christianity, in Australia? To explore that question I spoke with Rex A. E. Hunt, a retired Uniting Church minister, who lives just north of Sydney. He spoke to me about his work as a progressive minister, author, liturgist, and social ecologist. He is the chair of the Common Dreams Conference, September 19-22, 2013 and is the co-editor of Why Weren’t We Told? A Handbook on “progressive” Christianity. According to the book’s description:
Progressive Christianity is not new. It has been around for two hundred years or more. But the anger and disappointment of those who have encountered it only recently is palpable: “Why weren’t we told?” This international collection of cameos and articles on the themes and issues addressed by progressive Christianity is a response to that cry.
