The Charlotte Observer reports that Bishop Curry held a Q&A on Sunday about his possible agenda as presiding bishop, signaling a focus on an authentic form of personal evangelizing.
From the article:
“We’ve got to get to the day when the average Episcopalian is in touch with their own faith story and faith journey and is able to share that appropriately and authentically,” Curry said. “That may be the game-changer. … We’re good about doing. We’re nervous about talking.”
Such evangelism, Curry said, isn’t about converting people – “that’s God’s job, not ours” – but is about helping them “find their way to God.”
Curry also advocates for a church with a plurality of views, noting that he supports equality for people who identify as LGBT, but will never require clergy to perform marriages that they object to. Curry was an opponent of the North Carolina ban on marriage for same-sex couples, but says that he remained in connection with clergy who supported the ban.
