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.
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.
His sermon is being published as part of a collection called The Power of Love.
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.
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.
