CrossWalk America raises the profile of progressive Christians
What is CrossWalk America? It’s a journey made in 2006 by six progressive Christians who trekked across the country — 2500 miles — to spread a message to counter the religious right’s intolerance and desire to merge church and state. From the Beliefs page:
