Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has issued the following statement:
The life of Senator John Sidney McCain has been a witness to the nobility of living not for self alone but for the ideals and values that make for a better world.
With countless others, we of the Episcopal Church give God thanks for his life and service and pray likewise for his wife, children and family.
May his soul and the souls of all the departed rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen.
The Most Rev. Michael Curry
Presiding Bishop and Primate
