But I believe that it's up to us to develop our personal theologies. Please, if you disapprove of Progressive Christianity, that is your right. I have considered attending some Unitarian services (more for fellowship than anything) and am interested in all seekers no matter the title they choose for themselves. One of the rules of the forum is that it is open to everyone.

Many are comfortable with questioning as a way of grace.
