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. Encouraging Conversation: Resources for Talking about Same-Sex Blessings 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. Fredrica Harris Thompsett pulls in a range of voices and resources, designed to aid those congregations now approaching this exciting opportunity. Gene Robinson provides the foreword to this exploration of what it means to be engaged in the conversation.
