Before you know it, you too will have done theology! And the more people who talk and think about theology, the more people who engage and question, the stronger our collective faith becomes.
This means that the framework of the conversation often gets ceded to the conservative Christian voice. With the Connecticut Statement, we wanted to create, rather than react. We hope that what we have offered here is a fresh and cohesive theological vision, and shows that the progressive Christian voice has a valuable and much needed counterpoint to offer in the public discourse.
Second, you can help spread the good news by sharing the Connecticut Statement with your friends, family, fellow church members, and clergy. Help us spread this positive message! If you post it on social media, use #ConnecticutStatement so that others can see and share what you have to say.
Third, join in the theological discourse. For too long the public conversation has been dominated by a very conservative minority. It is time for us to speak up and change the conversation.
Ordinary people—clergy and lay—from all over the country, and around the world have signed the Connecticut Statement. Each icon below represents a city where at least one person, and sometimes many many more, have signed the Connecticut Statement. Add you name and support a theological vision big enough for the whole world.
