African-American Bishop Delivers Passion and Soul in Powerful Royal Wedding Address.
In a stirring royal wedding address, the African-American leader of the Episcopal Church quoted Martin Luther King Jr. and spoke passionately about the power of love.
“We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love,” said the Most Rev. Michael Curry, echoing the words of the civil rights leader, continuing: “And when we do that, we will make of this whole world a new world. But love, love is the only way. There is power in love. Don’t underestimate it. Don’t even over-sentimentalize it. There is power, power in love.”
Curry delivered the address shortly before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — said their vows. He is America’s first African-American leader of the Episcopal Church and an avid campaigner for social justice and racial equality.
