Bishop Michael Curry: ‘We have to learn how to live together’

Love = Wearing A Mask!

Rev. Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, tells TODAY that amid the protests following the death of George Floyd, we must all make “a daily decision to live in the way of love … when we all do that, we win.” As a symbol of love, he dons a face mask.

For your consideration.

Painter Creates ‘Driveway Gallery' to Cheer Neighbors During Pandemic

This is Ruth Willbanks' brother sharing his art and love with his neighbors.

Residents of a Bethesda neighborhood aren’t missing art galleries right now because they get to experience one each time they go for a walk. It’s all thanks to a very talented artist who lives around the corner. News4’s Shomari Stone reports.

Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry

The 4th of July weekend has just concluded and a new week has begun, but the titanic struggles of the old world continue. The struggles to face painful truths of our racial past, the struggles to find ways to fashion a new future, the struggles for racial justice and human equality and true human reconciliation. Even in the midst of these struggles, we still face a pandemic that is worldwide. Now the United States itself is gravely threatened and affected by COVID-19. And even in the midst of all of that, we enter a season of electioneering, campaigning, a presidential election that could well be a profoundly polarizing and divisive election for our country.

Resting in God by The Venerable L. Sue von Rautenkranz

God of strength and encouragement, you invite us to lay our worries, burdens, and cares on you. We are tired, worn out, and need your peace and comfort. Take our minds off our worries of the day to day tasks so that we may truly rest. Rest in you. And in that rest, may we know your peace. And in your peace, may we find refreshment. And in that refreshment rekindle joy and the love for our work of justice made known in Jesus your Son and emboldened by the Spirit. Amen

Grateful to Chris for the sound system, to Alicia for the plant flats that held the paper cups with the wafers, and to John & Steve for the “floor plan” painting on the grass. WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST! ALLELUIA!!

This Sunday at 11:15 AM. All are welcome!

Prepare yourself for a sermon that's unlike anything you've ever seen before at Washington National Cathedral.

On Sunday, we're thrilled to welcome the Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III as our guest preacher. He's the pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago (Barack Obama's old church), and he's bringing the Trinity choir with him.

In this moment when we need to dig deeper on the issue of race in our nation, Dr. Moss is leading the way. You won't want to miss it.

A Christian Call for Reparations

Christian theology has been used to legitimate white supremacist realities. We must tell that truth and push forward.

From Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde and Dean Randy Hollerith:

Thanks to two rulings from the United States Supreme Court, millions of people in our land received news for which they long hoped and prayed and worked so hard to achieve.

On Monday June 15, the Supreme Court ruled that LGBTQ persons are now fully protected from workplace discrimination under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. No longer is it legal anywhere in this country to terminate someone’s employment simply for being gay or transgender.

Today, June 18, the Court ruled that young adult immigrants known as Dreamers, brought to this country as children, need not worry that the federal government can revoke their legal status under DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Dreamers can keep their jobs and remain in school, and sleep at night knowing they are welcome and free of the fear of deportation in the only country they have called home.

We give thanks to God for these rulings and for all those who have dedicated their lives to ensuring the legal rights and status of those previously marginalized in this country. We are a better nation when we recognize the full humanity and the gifts of all our people. We must always remember that each person is a beloved child of God and made in the image and likeness of God — no matter who they are, who they love or where they were born.

While we give thanks for these rulings, events of the recent months make clear that our work for equity and justice continues. We celebrate and carry on.
