Presiding Bishop Curry shares vision on PBS News Hour

Speaking with Judy Woodruff on the PBS News Hour, Presiding Bishop Curry shares his views on his role in leading the Episcopal Church forward. A short excerpt of the conversation follows below:


Imagine if just Episcopalians were practically living their daily lives as reflections of the way Jesus of Nazareth lived his, loving in the same way that Jesus did and does, giving in the same way, forgiving, doing justice, caring, living compassionate lives.

I have a funny feeling Episcopalians could be transformative both in our interpersonal relationships and in our social and political relationships. What would happen if Christians just acted like Christians? It would change our politics. It would change our social order. It could change our global community.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Do you think our politics needs changing?

THE MOST REVEREND MICHAEL CURRY: Regardless of which side of the aisle you’re on — this isn’t a partisan statement — imagine our politics if we began to engage one another not from the perspective of my unenlightened self-interest, but from the perspective of our interests, the common good, the common weal.

Imagine our global politics. Imagine our economic relationships. It’s world-changing.
