Leading the Charge on Love!

In May of 2018, at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, our Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, The Most Reverend Michael B. Curry, stunned a worldwide audience of over one billion people with a riveting and exhilarating sermon on love.

For sixteen minutes Bishop Curry was a pastor and an advocate to the whole world and to the entire human race. In the days and weeks following the wedding, Bishop Curry continued the charge, meeting with news anchors and leaders to share his contagious joy and his steadfast belief that love, exemplified in Christ, can redeem the world.

 “How can we harness this momentum and further Bishops Curry’s call to ‘capture the energy of love’?”

Our advice to all members of the Diocese of Easton (and anyone who lands on this page) is to share!  Share the message of love that Bishop Curry spoke about, share his joyful visit to the Today show, share his light-hearted “appearance” on Saturday Night Live, and above all, share the “redemptive power of love” in every aspect of your being. Treat yourself kindly, show grace to your neighbor, and examine your words and actions with a careful eye towards love. We are the Episcopal Church, Bishop Curry is our spiritual leader, and we are working with our faithful brothers and sisters to “make of this old world, a new world”.

Finally, we’d like to everyone to share that Presiding Bishop Curry will be the Celebrant and Preacher for us on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 11:00am at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge Maryland for the closing Eucharist of our Sesquicentennial Celebration.  Tell your family and friends that they will have a rare opportunity to hear another amazing Bishop Curry sermon in person, here on the Eastern Shore.
