Press release from Malaprop’s Bookstore/Café:
Malaprop’s is pleased to partner with The Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina to present The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, author of “The Power of Love: Sermons, Reflections, and Wisdom to Uplift and Inspire.”
Bishop Curry will be in conversation with The Right Reverend José McLoughlin, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina.
The event will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church on Wednesday, June 26th at 6:00 p.m. Bishop Curry will sign books following conversation.
The Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry is Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church. He is the Chief Pastor and serves as President and Chief Executive Officer, and as Chair of the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church. He is the first African American Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church and was previously Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina.
In “THE POWER OF LOVE: Sermons, Reflections, and Wisdom to Uplift and Inspire” Bishop Curry, the first African-American presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, shares the full text of his captivating sermon at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, plus an original introduction and four of his favorite sermons on the themes of love and social justice. A beautifully designed, two-color gift book, THE POWER OF LOVE is Bishop Curry’s heartfelt plea on behalf of an increasingly divisive world, asking us to reject chaos and alienation and to embrace community. The way to get there is through love of one another, of ourselves, of humankind.
