Ha ha we spelled it wrong on purpose.  Meetings are the worst.  Unless it's time well-spent.  We hope Worst Church Ever is time well-spent for you and for us. This level of support will help us branch out into new kinds of content (within our mission) and give us the ability to produce it.

We upped the patronage and not the perks.  We're all about subverting economic expectations.  This is for rich young (or young at heart) rulers who just want to help. :)  Thank you!

About Worst Church Ever

Welcome to Worst Church Ever, the world’s worst progressive Christian podcast.
Our podcast tries to deconstruct the fundamentalist and evangelical theologies that seem to dominate so much of today’s Christian discourse in America. We use the Narrative Lectionary as a general guide for the order of our episodes, but we also tend to discuss the chapters and stories in between. There are also off-topic bonus episodes about everything from Carl Sandburg to 90s CCM to how we would have written the story of the rich young ruler.

We’re progressive Christians, and we’re aware that progressive Christianity is not monolithic. We don’t claim to represent the entirely of the tradition. We don’t pretend to have some exclusive claim on the term. We don’t think having the wrong theology means you’re going to hell. We don’t think the Bible says very much at all about homosexuality, but we know it says a hell of a lot about power and justice and solidarity with people on the margins. We don’t love being told we have to believe a certain set of things about the Bible (what it is, what it does, what it’s for) before we can encounter the the Living God. We believe the tomb’s still empty, after all. We seek theologies of inclusion, because the Good News is supposed to be good.
