• Inaugural volume in the new In Conversations series
• Get to know two trailblazing Episcopalians as they talk informally about things that matter to them

As a teenager, Michael Curry served as a part of the "Youth Presence" at General Convention 1979. While there, he met Barbara Harris, not yet a priest. The story of their friendship is one that tracks the history of the Episcopal Church over the intervening years.

In this volume, the two talk about a wide range of topics—their families and the strong women who shaped them, the vocation of the priesthood and the episcopacy, and social justice, among others—in a conversation facilitated and edited by Fredrica Harris Thompsett.

Audience: Members of the Episcopal Church, church leaders, and those caught by the vision of the Philadelphia Eleven, the Jesus Movement

Michael B. Curry, serves the Episcopal Church as its 27th Presiding Bishop. He was the Bishop of North Carolina from 2000 to 2015.

He received honorary degrees from Sewanee and Yale.

Barbara Harris was the first female bishop elected by the Anglican Communion.
