North Carolina’s Bishop Michael Curry elected church’s next presiding bishop.

The Episcopal Church’s General Convention on June 27 chose Diocese of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry to be its 27th presiding bishop.

Curry, 62, was elected by the House of Bishops from a slate of four nominees on the first ballot. Bishop Rob Wright said, “I had prayed the bishops would have a clear mind, and it is now clear: Michael Curry is our presiding bishop for this time, and the vote totals show we were strongly behind him by electing him on the first ballot.” After clergy and lay deputies voted to confirm Curry’s election by the bishops, Wright said he found it wonderful to hear Curry tell the full assembly that it was the Episcopal Church that taught him about Jesus. “Michael is so very proud of that and believes the Episcopal Church is a big part of the Jesus movement,” Wright said. “More than anything he is looking forward to serving with all the baptized, and his clear message is that everyone in this church is meant to be a missionary.”

SUMMER CONTRIBUTIONS: Please continue making pledge payments and donations through the summer to sustain our annual budget. Thank you for your generosity and continued support of our ministries.

The Ventulett Art Gallery honors parishioner and architect Tom Ventulett. Curator Jerry Stapleton and his committee line up artists, continuing to make the Ventulett Gallery one of the most sought venues in our area.  


Philip Carpenter - WORK: Making pencil drawings replaced painting for Carpenter about fifteen years ago. The drawings, as with paintings, require painterly invention to create convincing illusions. Though his interest sometimes wanders, he always returns to making portraits of ordinary things, such as hand tools and discarded toys. “I meticulously record their wear as my way of knowing them physically while honoring their unknowable histories.”

Christine Bray – The Space Between, Still Lifes and Landscapes: Bray’s work is about the light and dark in the still lifes and landscapes, not necessarily about the objects or the landscapes themselves. Together the light and dark come together to create a mood in the paintings resulting in a beautiful statement.


UpcomingEventsMEN OF HI DINNER & A BOOK: We will meet Tuesday, July 14 at the home of Tony Clarke from 6:30pm - 9:00pm. The book is Defiant by Alvin Townley. For directions and more information contact Jeremy Webber.
