GUEST BLOG: Episcopal Peace Fellowship Applauds New Presiding Bishop's Election

The Episcopal Peace Fellowship (EPF) celebrates the landslide election of Bishop Michael Curry to be the Episcopal Church’s new Presiding Bishop during the General Convention ,on June 27.

“For two General Conventions Bishop Curry has supported the work of EPF's Young Adult Network through generous financial and spiritual support,” said the Rev. Allison Sandlin Liles, EPF executive director.

“Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry embraces Episcopal Peace Fellowship's objective of identifying, gathering, training and empowering young adult peacemakers and we look forward to continually working together over the next nine years," she said.

“Episcopal Peace Fellowship recognizes Presiding Bishop-elect Curry's work and witness for justice, as exemplified in his active leadership in Moral Mondays in Raleigh, calling for responsible state government dedicated to the health and welfare of all North Carolinians,” Liles said.\

During Presiding Bishop-elect Curry’s talk in the House of Deputies after his election, he said "We’ve got a society where there are challenges before us and there are crises all around us. And the church has challenges before it. We got a God and there really is a Jesus, and we are part of the Jesus Movement. Nothing can stop the movement of God’s love in this world.”

The Episcopal Peace Fellowship has advocated for peace since its founding on Armistice Day 1939. EPF website –
