The Power of Love

The Power of Love

The text of the celebrated 2018 royal wedding sermon, plus four other sermons touching on themes of love, commitment, and social justice, by Bishop Michael Curry

Two billion people watched Bishop Michael Curry deliver his sermon on the redemptive power of love at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Here, he shares the full text of that sermon, plus an introduction describing the context, along with four of his favourite sermons on the themes of love and social justice.

The world met Bishop Curry at the wedding and was moved by his riveting, hopeful, and deceptively simple message: love and acceptance are what we need in these strange times.

Reviews

He's the guy who preached at Harry and Megan's wedding with that awesome sermon...Normally after a wedding we're normally talking about flowers and frocks and all that, but everyone was talking about that sermon and the power of his words.
BBC Radio 2 - Kate Bottley
Beneath Bishop Curry's plain words is a profound theology and a dear mystical insight of how union with Christ must lead to social action... This book would make a great present.
Church Times
Outside London's Southwark Cathedral people are queuing for the chance to see him speak in the flesh as he launches The Power of Love, a new book that includes both Harry and Meghan's wedding sermon, and some of his other finest moments in the pulpit. Inside, he is every bit as genial and compelling in person as he appeared that sunny day in May.
The Telegraph
The core theme of all the sermons is this transfiguring power of love. Bishop Curry has a moving use of language by which he picks up phrases from scripture, spirituals, or hymns. By his repetition of these phrases through a sermon, they become like waves crashing on rocks. Beneath Bishop Curry's plain words is a profound theology and a dear mystical insight of how union with Christ must lead to social action.
The Church Times
His sermon is being published as part of a collection called The Power of Love.
BBC Radio 4 - Sunday
At St George's Chapel, Windsor, on May 19, the co-celebrant gave what has been widely acknowledged as a tour de force...He develops this theme in The Power of Love, an anthology of his recent sermons, which was launched at Southwark Cathedral in London this week.
