Presiding Bishop Michael Curry receives a standing ovation from bishops and other colleagues this morning at St. Peter’s.

Gracious and loving God, lift up Dan, DeDe, Rob, Scott, and Sean, called as candidates for the next presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, as they meet with their bishop colleagues today at St. Peter’s Church in Charlotte. Make all our hearts discerning hearts as all our leaders, lay and ordained, local and church-wide, continue to live into the abundant life you have prepared for us, manifesting your mystery, justice, and love as only we can. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
