Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will preach opening night at Trinity Wall Street’s conference on race

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will preach opening night at Trinity Wall Street’s conference on race

Trinity Wall Street has announced that Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will give the opening sermon for TI2016, “Listen for a Change: Sacred Conversations for Racial Justice,” taking place January 21-23.

“I think my election is a move in the right direction,” says Curry in an interview from Trinity about the upcoming conference and the issues it will address. “It was a church saying ‘we’re going to find the person who’s the right person for us as a church at this particular moment in our history, and I think that’s a good thing, but we’ve got work to do…

“We must never settle for the way things are.”

In the interview, Curry draws theological parallels among racism, poverty, crime, war and the environment:

“The reality is, some of the same dynamics that are a part of racism are some of the same dynamics that are a part of our not caring for the planet in which we live, are some of the same dynamics that are a part of every war that has ever been fought, and by that I mean we’re really talking about sin.”

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.
