SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — On December 10, 2022, the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego will welcome Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to Southern California for The Good News Festival. With workshops and panel discussions, youth offerings, a holiday marketplace, and an evening of celebration at the beautiful Town and Country Resort, this is the perfect time to get away and enjoy some good news at this free, family-friendly event. The event is hosted by the 5th Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego and the first female bishop in San Diego, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Susan Brown Snook.
Widely regarded as one of the most dynamic preachers of our time, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is the first African American to be elected Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church. Along with his famous sermon at the Royal Wedding, he is an author and activist, noted for his inspiring and galvanizing preaching style and his profound concern for social justice.
The Rev. Dr. William Barber is known as one of the most prominent advocates for the poor in the country. Publicly preaching on the plight of low-income people, Rev. Barber refuses to engage in diversionary fights, remaining loyal to the Gospel. The philosopher Cornel West called him “the closest person we have to a Martin Luther King Jr.”
Joining these two unparalleled preachers is the Voices of Our City Choir. Many remember this street choir from America’s Got Talent, where they were honored with the ‘Golden Buzzer’ for their performance. This awe-inspiring choir celebrates good news with every single note. Comprised of individuals currently and formerly experiencing homelessness, the Voices of Our City Choir helps show the very real faces of those struggling to find housing in San Diego.
