The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, presiding bishop and primate of The Episcopal Church, is the featured preacher Nov. 25 on “Day 1” with host Peter Wallace, the nationally broadcast ecumenical radio program also accessible online at He has preached on the program numerous times since 1990.

Curry was installed in 2015 to a 9-year term. Previously he served as Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina for 15 years and earlier served churches in North Carolina, Ohio, and Baltimore. A graduate of Hobart College in New York, he received an M.Div. from Yale Divinity School with additional studies at Princeton Theological Seminary, Wake Forest University, the Ecumenical Institute at St. Mary’s Seminary, and other institutions.

His sermon “The King of Love” is based on John 18:33-37, the passage containing Pilate’s questioning of Jesus as to his kingship. Jesus answers that his kingdom is not of this world. “This statement has often been interpreted to suggest an individualized otherworldly piety, divorced from real life,” Curry says. “But that’s not what is going on here. The way of Jesus is about how we live our lives individually and collectively, personally and publicly.”

Curry is the author of three books: “Crazy Christians: A Call to Follow Jesus,” “Songs My Grandma Sang,” and “Following the Way of Jesus: Church’s Teachings in a Changing World.” A book of five of his most notable sermons entitled “The Power of Love: Sermons, Reflections, and Wisdom to Uplift and Inspire” will be released this month by Avery, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

The program includes interviews with Curry conducted by Wallace, who is also executive producer.

“Day 1” has been broadcast every week for over 73 years, formerly as “The Protestant Hour.” Featuring outstanding preachers from the mainline denominations, “Day 1” is currently distributed to more than 200 radio stations across America and overseas. The program is produced by the Alliance for Christian Media, based
