Following on from his ground-breaking sermon at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Bishop Michael Curry continues his teaching on love as the source of hope in troubling times.
We were created by love, for love, to love and to be loved. And we are at our best when we live in God’s love. And I believe deep down, it’s what we all want. We don’t want hatred. We don’t want the abyss. We want Beloved Community. The way of love is how to live it.
When Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018, two billion people watched around the world. For one brief moment, love recreated the cosmos, the world came together. And the Bishop Michael Curry preached his revolutionary sermon on the power of love.
As the descendant of slaves and the son of a civil rights activist, Bishop Michael Curry’s life illustrates massive changes in our times. Here, he expands on his message of hope in an inspirational roadmap for living the way of love, illuminated with moving lessons from his own life.
Love is the Way is essential for addressing the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing the world today: poverty, racism, selfishness, deep ideological divisions, competing claims to speak for God. This book will lead readers to discover the gifts they need in order to live the way of love: deep reservoirs of
hope and resilience, simple wisdom, the discipline of nonviolence, and unshakable regard for human dignity.
The Most Reverend Michael B.
