After the 2015 General Convention of the Episcopal Church authorizing trial use liturgies for the celebration and blessing of same-sex unions, 93 bishops authorized trial use liturgies for marriage, granting sacramental inclusion to all. 8 bishops did not. These are the stories from one of the dioceses left behind: The Diocese of Tennessee.
The General Convention of the Episcopal Church met July 5-13, 2018 in Austin, Texas and passed Resolution B012, Marriage Rites for the Whole Church. We are waiting to hear from Bishop John Bauerschmidt about implementing that Resolution in the Diocese of Tennessee.
