Bishop Michael Curry Was Installed Sunday As The 1st Black Leader Of The U.S. Episcopal Church!
Readers, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry was installed Sunday as the first Black leader of the U.S. Episcopal Church. He urged Episcopalians to evangelize by crossing divides of race, education and wealth. The New York-based denomination was the church of many Founding Fathers and now has about 1.9 million members.
Episcopalians now are struggling with shrinking membership and ongoing tensions with fellow Anglicans around the world over the Episcopal support for gay marriage.
