Foreword by V. Gene Robinson

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.

Fredrica Harris Thompsett is the Mary Wolfe professor of historical theology at the Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, MA, where she has also served as academic dean for fourteen years. She is the author or editor of several Church Publishing and Morehouse titles, including the most recent Encouraging Conversation and the highly regarded We Are Theologians.
