Courage to Love is an anthology of worship materials which allow gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender men and women to affirm their sexuality. Poems, prayers, stories, litanies, same-sex blessings, marriage ceremonies, celebratory material and eucharistic and baptismal liturgies are all represented. The pieces engage with a whole range of relevant experiences including peer group pressure, prejudice, abuse (physical and emotional) and the silence of the church. This is a resource for public worship and private devotion in the journey towards total acceptance of men and women regardless of their sexual orientation. The contributors are from all over the world, and include Richard Kirker, James Alison, Chris Glaser and Bill Kirkpatrick.
