Progressive Christian Artists

Conservative Christians have lead the way in networking artists in recent years. One of the ironies of my lifetime, I think, is that what was a controversial innovation in the 1960’s and early 1970’s – “Christian rock” – by the 1980’s became the bread and butter (or icing on the cake) of religious radio. Many/most religious broadcasting networks had a strongly conservative political and economic agenda, and thus CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) largely lost it prophetic edge and became, all too often, the soundtrack of the Religious Right.
That’s why I’m glad to hear about this new group … I hope you’ll check it out and spread the word.
