Building a Bridge, by Father James Martin, sj

What a timely little book to introduce into our current society, our sometimes divisive parishes, groups, families, even! Father Martin leads us, through biblical passages and reflective questions, to learn and re-learn sensitivity, respect and compassion in relationships. (Sample: Ps. 139, Question 1: “Think about what it means for you to “be wonderfully made.” Can you praise God, as the Psalmist does? What would your praise look like? The author is speaking to Catholic leaders, to members of the LGBT community and to all of us who claim discipleship with Jesus.
