Defining Progressive Faith

During the Progressive Faith Blog Conference, I attended a panel discussion by Rabbi Arthur Waskow (left in picture), Dr. Bruce Prescott (right) and Pastor Dan (center).
Pastor Dan operates the DailyKos interfaith blog community Street Prophets where he is continuing the conversation about what progressive faith means.  He suggests that defining progressive faith should include:

  1. Support for the separation of church and state
  2. Modernist or heterodox faith beliefs
  3. Getting something out of Martin Buber (this one wasn’t entirely serious)
  4. Counterweight to the Religious Right
  5. Social Experiment

What do you think–using this definition–would Adventism fit as progressive? Do you think that he neglects something in his definition? Feel free to comment below.
