Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry has released a video calling for action to make this country safe. “We must make our country safe because all of us are valuable and we are all children of God.”
The Presiding Bishop notes, “We in the United States are in the midst of a great discussion, a great debate.”
He speaks about the young people of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, the site of the recent shooting. “They are asking us, and imploring us, and challenging us to find a better way.”
He notes we need “to make our schools safe, to make our streets safe, and to make this country safe for all of God’s children and all of God’s people.”
The video is here.
