This summer Bishop Michael Curry to Greenbelt shot to public attention when he preached *that* sermon at Harry and Meghan’s wedding. Two billion people around the world heard him speak about the redemptive power of love.
Now, in his new book, The Power of Love, Bishop Michael Curry shares the entire text of that sermon, with its introduction and context notes – together with four more of his favourite sermons on the themes of love and social justice. His deceptively simple message is one we all need to hear in these strange times: that love and acceptance are what we need most of all.
Rev. Kate Bottley will be your host for the evening and Bishop Michael will be in conversation with journalist and writer, Cole Moreton. There will be opportunity to buy the book before and after the event.
Bishop Curry is the first black presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in the USA. He is well known and respected for speaking out on immigration, race, gun control, and other moral issues of our day and is widely recognised as one of the most popular preachers in the English language.
