Just before a stirring performance of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” by Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir, the Most Reverend Michael Curry delivered a rousing sermon that both began and ended with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
As Harry and Meghan sat nearby holding hands, Curry—who was appointed the first black presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in 2015—gave an address centered on “The Power of Love.”
Many watching were quick to tweet about his inspiring words.
Some viewers latched onto Curry’s enthusiastic catchphrase of “That’s fire!” to praise the sermon.
Others had more general feelings of excitement about Curry’s message.
