Curry Exudes Optimism & Good Health

“Don’t you worry about this church. Don’t you weep, and don’t you moan. Just roll up your sleeves and let’s get to work.”

“I think I was elected to help the church to reclaim our faith in Jesus Christ — to see Jesus of Nazareth and his way of love as the defining paradigm for what it means to be a Christian, and to not be apologetic about that.”

Michael Loves Deeply

I did not anticipate early morning FaceTime conversations about the Buffalo Bills and America’s Got Talent, or the relative merits of various brands of hot sauce.

‘Preach the Gospel’

He made the sign of the cross on my forehead, held his hands on my head and offered an earnest prayer. He said “Amen” in that deep, rich voice, and then looked me in the eyes and said, “Now go preach the gospel, my brother.”
