Respected Episcopal ethicist Timothy F. Sedgwick provides an alternative viewpoint on the homosexuality debate, on the proposed Anglican Covenant, and on mission and ministry. He deals insightfully with what he thinks is a mistaken assumption in the Church and advances a cogent argument that the church needs to be clear in forming its moral teaching—whether liberal or conservative. The right question, Sedgwick maintains, is how do we teach morals and order our life accordingly? This book evolved from his work over the last decade addressing same-sex issues in the national church.

Chapters include:

-Homosexuality, Teaching, and Governance in the Episcopal Church

-The Anglican Covenant: What are Bishops for?

-Anglican-Roman Catholic Dialogue: The Unity We Seek

-Moral Teaching, Formation, and the Mission of the Church

For Episcopal leaders, bishops, theologians, ecumenical officers, General Convention
delegates, and other denominational leaders and laity, who are struggling with sexuality
