Sharon Osbourne “X-Factor”Judge, T.V show host and Music Manager 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.”
Sharon who is also 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 Bishop 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.
