Our diocese was blessed to welcome Presiding Bishop Michael Bruce Curry back to Salt Lake City as the guest of honor and keynote speaker for Diocesan Convention.
He addressed the convention Friday at the business session and during a banquet held that evening. Guests included various leaders from local faith communities, including General Authorities of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the new bishop of the Salt Lake City Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church.
On Saturday, Presiding Bishop Curry preached the sermon at the Holy Eucharist. His dynamic preaching engaged all who attended. Themes included love over hate, following the path of Jesus and coming together as one people of God. All of his teachings were in line with his well-known message – his passion for the Jesus Movement. “That movement has changed the world before and it can change the world again,” he said.
His own words sum up his presence at the convention: “May God bless you, may God keep you, and may God hold each one of us in those almighty hands of love.”
