Local church excited about
future with Bishop Curry
BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY
FOR THE CHRONICLE
St. Stephen's Episcopal
Church, 810 N. Highland
Ave. in Winston-Salem, is
where Michael Curry, the
new presiding bishop of
the U.S. Episcopal Church,
served as deacon in charge
from 1978-1982. Rev. Dr.
Hector Sintim, priest in
charge at St. Stephen's,
called Curry's ascension to
the position "an opportuni
ty few change.
A church member,
Gertrude Mure hi son, was
on the search committee
that elected Curry to the
Diocese of North Carolina
in the year 2000. where he
served as bishop until
recently when he was cho
sen presiding bishop of the
U.S. Episcopal Church.
Murchison was asked
about her experience in the
welcoming party during
the installation of Curry in
Washington D.C. on Nov. 1
at the Washington National
She said, "It was a
wonderful experience and
there were people from all
over the U.S. and the serv
ice was outstanding.
Bishop Curry is special, he
is full of fire and God has
his hand on him and I think
that is wonderful."
Sintim touched on the
state of the Episcopal
Church on Sunday, Nov. 8,
by saying that the church is
going through a transfor
mation fiom the standpoint
of leadership and becom
ing more open minded and
accepting than in previous
'To us, it's a new
opportunity for change. We
are anticipating with
Bishop Curry and the
Pope, they can affect the
religious community there
by affecting the world,
because the Catholic and
Episcopal Church are the
most dominating and rec
ognized churches in the
world," said Sintim of the
installation of Bishop
He went on to say, "We
are in a tough time and we
need tough leaders to bring
a transformation to the
world, not only for those
who go to church, but also
for those who do not, so
that we may deal with the
issues of the day, issues of
the economy, and issues of
Sintim finished by say
ing, "Bishop Michael
Curry is what we call an
Ubuntu leader, which
means 'You are because I
am, I am because you are.
Part of you is in me and
pan of me is in you and
therefore for me to be able
to function effectively, I
need you and you need
me.' Bishop Curry is one of
the most charismatic lead
ers of all the Bishops and
that was one of the criteria
of why he was chosen for
the position and with him
in charge, there will be a
lot of transformation and
some members may slip
out, but the strong ones
will stay and then we can
change our community,
change our nation and
change our world."
Veterans at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church are (L-R) Leroy Barkley, Norman Lytle, Clifford Moore,
