A Radical Way of Life
By Bishop Michael B. Curry
Bishop Michael Curry preached at the Royal Wedding 2018; he calls for radical disciples of Jesus to change the world.
We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it. And for those who would follow him, those who would be his disciples, those who would live as and be the people of the Way. It might come as a shock, but they are called to craziness.
From Bishop Curry's "Crazy Christians" address to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Indianapolis.
The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry was installed as the 27th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church on November 1, 2015. Bishop Curry was overwhelming elected on the first ballot at the 2015 General Convention. Bishop Curry, 62, is the first African-American to be elected Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church.
Bishop Curry serves as chief pastor and primate to the Episcopal Church's members in 17 countries, 109 dioceses and three regional areas. He joins with other principal bishops of the 38-member Provinces of the worldwide Anglican Communion, seeking a common cause for global good and reconciliation.
