Most of the world it seemed, stopped to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. A wedding filled with so many beautiful and poignant moments. Pomp and Pagentry. Royalty and stars. But who can forget the impassioned sermon delivered by Bishop Michael Curry on the redemptive power of love.
“Imagine a world where love is the way. Imagine our homes and families where love is the way. Imagine neighbourhoods and communities where love is the way. Imagine governments and nations where love is the way. Imagine business and commerce where this love is the way. Imagine this tired old world where love is the way. When love is the way – unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive. When love is the way, then no child will go to bed hungry in this world ever again…When love is the way, poverty will become history.”
Bishop Michael Curry began his message with this quote from Dr Martin Luther King, I choose to close with it.
“We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world, for love is the only way.”
Dr Martin Luther King
Imagine a world that follows the way of love. For where love is, God is, for God is love.
