Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on the passing of Shimon Peres

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on the passing of Shimon Peres

From The Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs:

[September 29, 2016] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry has issued the following statement on the passing of Shimon Peres.

We in the Episcopal Church join with our brothers and sisters throughout the world in mourning the passing of Shimon Peres. He will long be remembered as a leader of Israel, a citizen of the world, and as one who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Yasser Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin, as a man of peace. For that noble work the words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount seem appropriate:

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry
Presiding Bishop and Primate
The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
