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.
