Born Episcopal bishop to preach at next Saturday's royal wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have invited The Most Reverend Michael Michael Bruce Curry, of Chicago to give the address at their wedding next Saturday, according to a press release.

Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, has been chosen to give the address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

Last month, we shared with you the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle promised support of LGBTQ issues after they'd tied the knot.

Sadly, it seems that Curry's, and the Episcopal Church's, support of same-sex marriage has created strains with the Anglican Communion.

He said: "I'm always nervous at weddings because it is such an important day for the couple - whoever they are".

Best senior prank ever? Wisconsin school, police laud graduating jokers
The elaborate prank earned the students praise from their school and even the local Cumberland Police Department . Pranks that happen during homecoming week, last weeks of school etc.

Curry spent time at school in Buffalo, New York, before heading to Hobart College in Geneva, New York in 1975. "I've been at a number of services where he's preached and it is a wonderful, uplifting, remarkable experience", Barrington said.

Harry and also Markle's range of an American pastor is just a fracture out of royal custom. Curry now lives in NY. Rev. David Conner, and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who will officiate at the service.

The Suits actress was quietly baptised by Archbishop Welby ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry whose grandmother, the Queen, is the head of the Anglican Church. The historic parish was the first African American Episcopal church built south of the Mason-Dixon line, and welcomed both freed and enslaved people when it was formed in 1824. The bishop says his father chose to become a part of the church after he and his mother had been allowed to drink from the same chalice being passed among white parishioners in racially segregated Ohio.

He gained fame for his 2012 sermon "We need some insane Christians".

He went on to say that the followers of Jesus need those same characteristics.
