The Story of St. Paul's Process About Same-Gender Blessings
St. Paul's engaged in a process, first to discuss whether we could discuss, and later to engage the entire congregation
in an open conversation to discern whether we would offer rites of blessing for our committed same-gender loving couples.
For many, the process was as important as the decisions we ultimately came to. As an offering
to other congregations, here is the story of our process. We found it to be a fruitful exercise that has blessed us
in many ways.
