In this episode, Bishop Curry talks with the Most Rev. Thabo Makgoba, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa. Archbishop Thabo’s life is punctuated with stories of hope and oppression, joy and anger, truth and reconciliation.
To Pray on the Way of Love is to dwell intentionally with God each day, whether in though, word, or deed, individually or corporately. Far from a trite bit of advice or a platitude awkwardly expressed or a passive response to injustice, prayer is an intensely powerful practice that centers us on our relationship with God and undergirds the love we show to neighbors.
Bishop Curry and Archbishop Makgoba discuss how prayer has been integral to the work of peace with justice in South Africa – through ministries and advocacy from the environment to racial reconciliation. As members of the worldwide Anglican Communion, The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Southern Africa work with partners around the world to share the love of God and neighbor in our varied contexts.
