Worshipping in the Black Church Tradition with Kelly Brown Douglas

In this episode, Bishop Curry talks with the Very Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary. This audio comes from the 2020 International Black Clergy Conference, presented by The Episcopal Church’s Office of Black Ministries.

To Worship on the Way of Love is to gather in community weekly to thank, praise, and dwell with God. Dean Brown Douglas and Bishop Curry discuss their understanding of being Black Episcopalians, and the lessons that the whole Church can learn from the earliest days of the Black Church through to the present day. As we explore our relationships with God, as we draw closer to God, we will find ourselves, in turn, drawing closer to each other.
