This chapter discusses theological development from the margins rather than from Rome. It examines the chapters in this volume and the conferences from which they were born from the perspective of ecclesiology. It concludes that this work bears significant meaning for the Catholic Church, insofar as it presents new places for theological reflection and widening understandings of who constitutes the church. Looking beyond the confines of the contributions of scholars in this volume, it argues for the theological possibilities of sacramental same-sex marriage within the church, based in Catholic notions of divine love and theological anthropology.
