I wasn’t sure whether I was going to watch the Royal Wedding.
But I’m really glad I did.
Of course the setting looked glorious in the spring sunshine, the pomp and ceremony were as good as it gets, the music was splendid and the bride looked beautiful (as all brides do – but what a lovely smile).
The thing that made it for me though (and which surprised and impressed a lot of other people too it seems) was of all things a sermon.
The American Bishop Michael Curry gave a magnificent 14 minute sermon on the subject of Christian Love, and what might happen if it caught on. Captivating.
If you haven’t heard it here’s a link – have a listen. It might be one of the best quarter hours you’ll ever spend.
