Music manager and “X-Factor” show host Sharon Osbourne has said that the reason the Church of England continues losing members is partly because it’s clergy is “too boring,” urging Anglicans to take a page from U.S. Episcopal Bishop Michael Curry.
“The churches are empty because the services are boring,” Osbourne told the Sunday Express. “They need more of the emotion we saw from the Bishop, who was animated and fabulous.”
The T.V. host, who is married to heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne, said that her own move to America helped her “sneak through the British way of life and to become so much more emotional.”
She praised Curry, who delivered a 14-minute sermon at the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, for offering such emotion that resonated with many.
Curry, who became the first African American to preside over the Episcopal Church in 2015, focused his sermon on the power of sacrificial, receptive love, as Jesus demonstrated in His death.
“We were made by a power of love. Our lives were meant and are meant to be lived in that love. That’s why we are here. Ultimately the source of love is God himself. The source of all of our lives,” the bishop declared.
