The royal wedding has shown the face of a better Britain – open, forward-thinking, positive. We need to use this spirit to revitalise our troubled, divided nation
The royal wedding proved an extraordinary event, with the magisterial backdrop of St George’s Chapel the perfect setting. There were several highlights – two stand-out moments being Bishop Michael Curry’s astonishing address and the Kingdom Choir’s spine-tingling performance of Stand By Me. Curry’s address was reminiscent of Martin Luther King. It gave the wedding an exciting, black American aesthetic, changing the familiar format for such occasions and making the event unlike anything before it.
Curry talked about the redemptive power of love, that love shows us ways to live and that through love, we’ll make of this world a new world. Not only in its romantic form can love heal, any kind of love has that power.
