Encouraging Conversation - Resources for Talking about Same-Sex Blessings

Just out from Morehouse Publishing, ENCOURAGING CONVERSATION: Resoureces for Talking about Same-Sex Blessings.

Professor Fredrica Harris Thompsett is editor, forward is by Bishop V. Gene Robinson, and Chapter 3 is by Patricia Bird and me. 

The blurb online reads, "With the authorization of "I Will Bless You and You Will Be A Blessing," more Episcopal parishes will be preparing to be in conversation about same-sex blessings and issues of sexuality. This volume is designed to tell the stories of parishes and dioceses where the conversation has been held: what worked, what didn't work, how the conversation shaped and was shaped by those involved. Harris Thompsett pulls in a range of voices and resources, designed to aid those congregations now approaching this exciting opportunity."

Worth the read. Glad to have been part of it. Buy it HERE.

Thank you, Fr. Mark, for this resource. I have taken the liberty of promoting it on my kiwianglo website in New Zealand. hopefully, there will be some read the book who presently struggle with the concept. Agape.
