Presiding Bishop released from hospital

Presiding Bishop released from hospital

Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry has been discharged from the hospital in Virginia today and is going to his home in North Carolina.

“God is God and I have lived my life trusting in Him,” the Presiding Bishop said.  “And I believe the Church and the world are in God’s hands even when it may not seem like it.”

Presiding Bishop Curry expressed his gratitude for the healthcare team of doctors, nurses and all “who have been helpful to me during the hospitalization.”

The Presiding Bishop will continue his healthcare regimen which includes physical therapy and occupational therapy.

Presiding Bishop Curry and his family are touched by the outpouring of prayers and well wishes. In their thankfulness, they ask for privacy during his recovery.

As noted previously, he plans to conduct a staff meeting on Monday via videoconferencing from his home.

Presiding Bishop Curry was taken to the hospital Sunday, December 6 after a visitation to Bruton Parish Church in Colonial Williamsburg, VA.

Further information will continue to be released by the Presiding Bishop’s office.

Didn’t intend to sound snarky. Thanks for answering my questions. God bless the PB.
P.S. New York isn’t a bad place to live, the people are friendly, shopping is convenient and the Primatial residence isn’t shabby.

WhatEVER he needs to do to heal and be prepared for whatever comes next is just fine!

The office of PB can be considered a “temporary” job, as it is for a fixed nine-year term. It is wise to retain one’s personal residence.

Hey, even U.S. presidents do that!

I would want to be in a place I felt most familiar with during a time of recovery, so I can understand his wanting to go back to North Carolina for a while. I’m so grateful he is out of the hospital!

Every prayer and best wish for a speedy and full recovery for Bishop Michael but I’m wondering when the whole Episcopal Church, of which he is now Primate, will be considered his family and his home will be the Presiding Bishop’s residence in New York.

He is recovering with his family in familiar surroundings close to medical care he knows. ++KJS did not live at 815 either. Spent non-travel and non-meeting time in Nevada on their ranch. Very healthy IMO

The man just had a hole drilled into his head! NC is much closer to the hospital in VA for someone who needs time to recover than NYC.
