Curry for the soul: top Episcopal bishop talks love and royal wedding

From Guam-

Known for his powerful sermon during the royal wedding, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry was recently on island for a speaking engagement hosted by St. John's Church and School.

Curry is the 27th Presiding Bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church. Elected in 2015, he is the first African American to serve in such capacity.

But most probably know Presiding Bishop Curry for his passionate sermon during the infamous wedding that took place in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

According to Curry, the decision to have him part of the royal wedding was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's idea. He said that for whatever reason, the couple wanted to hear his voice at the wedding and that is when the Archbishop of Canterbury called him up.

“I don't think you tell the royal family no,” he remembers. “And so the initial question was, if you were asked to preach at the upcoming royal wedding on May 19th, would you be available?”
