Jesus came to earth, Michael Curry says, to show us God’s dream for the world: the dream of a world where no child suffers, no one goes to bed hungry, no one is abandoned and alone: a world where love is the way. He came to start a movement, not to found a religion, and the Jesus Movement has the power to turn the world upside down.
But how can we be a part of this movement, in a world where life for too many feels like a nightmare? How can we make a world of integrity, justice and compassion, where every single person has dignity and freedom? Michael Curry will explore his vision of God’s passionate dream for humanity and what can happen when we take the Jesus Movement seriously.
The Most Revd Michael Curry is the 27th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopalian Church. He preached last year at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and is the author of Following the Way of Jesus, The Power of Love, Crazy Christians: A Call to Follow Jesus and Songs My Grandma Sang (all Hodder Faith 2018-19).
The evening will be chaired by Dr Paula Gooder, Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral, and include plenty of time for questions and answers.
