    I was so excited to see the video this evening with Presiding Bishop Curry giving his view of our mission. It seems to be on point to me!! His words honor Our Lord’s life and inspire me to be more and to do more!! I am least in this movement but I want to be a part of something that makes a difference in this world.

    • The worship was wonderfully incorporated with different cultures, and attended by people of other faiths. I saw the beauty of traditional and contemporary worship together. It is a good lesson for all churches to know that we can mix and match well in local congregations.
      His sermon was very appropriate for the occasion. A 20th century Sri-Lankan Theologian and scholar, Rev. Dr. D. T. Niles, defined a task of evangelism…One beggar telling another beggar where to get food. In a similar way, our newly installed 27th presiding Bishop Rt. Rev. Michael Curry preached of Evangelism by giving an example of a Good Samaritan story which fit into the 21st century that reached out to everyone. He did not forget to mention the importance of reconciliation. His interpretation on the sermon text Acts 17, verse 6, “When they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some believers before the city authorities, shouting, ‘These people who have been turning the world upside down have come here also’” was very interesting as well as inspiring.
      I did not realize that he preached for over 30 minutes until I read it today in the Episcopal News Service (ENS). Undoubtedly, it is unusual for many Episcopalians if a preacher stretches their sermon beyond 15 minutes. However, this is a wakeup call to all Episcopalians including pastors that we could turn the world upside down by following Jesus’ model. Bishop Curry is a Charismatic preacher and a leader, and my congregation and I will keep him, his family as well as his challenging ministry in our daily prayers and thoughts.
