[Video] A 3-minute JOY Boost from Bishop Michael Curry
If you are reading this message, you are not alone!
One of the truly beautiful gifts of the Global Joy Summit was the way it brought people from all corners of the globe together to form a community of shared joy and inspiration.
Today, we’d like to share a powerful clip from Bishop Michael Curry‘s session in the summit, in which he encourages us, with tremendous passion, to keep going — to keep building community; to lift each other up; and to let light shine in the darkness.
We hope this ignites your JOY and inspiration as it has for us!

It’s indeed a great effort and very beneficial for all human beings across the globe. We all are on this earth for some limited period. We all want to be happy, joyful, kind, and courteous during our life span. Nobody is absolutely perfect. Everyone has some weaknesses and some strengths. My weakness may be the strength of someone and vice versa. If we join hands together and support each other everyone will be happy. Times in our lives also remain the same. Today if I am facing a tough time tomorrow maybe someone. if everyone who is enjoying a good time today and helping others who are facing tough times tomorrow same will reciprocate the same with him in case needed. Many thanks for the initiative and for spreading the message of love, peace, prosperity, Pleasure, and brotherhoods across the globe beyond geographical boundaries.
I listened in the early morning and my heart is full excited for the day.
This short but powerfully uplifting and inspirational video by bishop Michael is a tonic and a balm in these deeply uncertain and chaotic time of global corruption .AS the power players and the bad guys seem to be running the world and us into the ground and making life harder for the people .The bishops timely message of doing our best in and for our communities empowers us as there are great and positive community projects going on . Community minded and community spirited all for one and one for all .
Thankyou brother Michael 👏🏽
Light ,love and joy to All and for All .
Thank you from Lucia. Bishop Curry’s words are so uplifiting. I have recently (in the past 2 years) become homebound with a difficult condition as a result of cancer treatment 20+ years ago. Each day is a challenge, and it is good to be reminded that I actually made it thru cancer twice and am managing thru now with the love and support of my wonderful husband and dear friends. I could not meet each day without my community of loved ones.
we need to support each others . I agree.
Loving it! Thank you for this powerful message 🙂
Let’s all support each other to build community – in place and on line. Thank you.
Thank you for your inspiring words!
Beautiful and inspiring words, thank you!
how sweet is the light of spring
thanks for expressing joy
Thank you for sharing this inspiring clip. I happen to be Episcopalian myself so I’ve heard Bishop Curry before. As usual he was very articulate and passionate. I’ve had a gratitude journal for a little over a year. I had previously never even considered that these things existed, but am so glad I started mine.
Well, in reality we are all here just now writing a comment. We shared that wonderful moment of togetherness. May you walk in light and remember kindness and compassion goes a long way. Be well my fellow travellers or H.I.T -Human in Training as I always remind myself. Be kind to yourself.
Focus on the positives, including those from the past. They are your building blocks for a more joyful tomorrow. Thank you so much for the inspiration Bishop! xxx
I choose to be happy. Thank you very much Rev.
Thanks you!! Your smile is inspiring
Thank You for your joy!!!
So beautiful moment of JOY! ❤️🙏🏻✨🧘🏻♀️
In this time of sadness and mourning, the Bishop’s inspiring words uplift me. I am especially heartened when he repeats “ you’ve been here before….you can do this”. It’s true. The Dalai Lamai has also reminded us that Human beings are wired to be happy. Thank you!
Sempre com Fé, Foco e Força 🙏
There is an elegance in the simplicity of this powerful reminder. Love and respect and the core of the human condition. Let’s not get distracted by the trappings of perception.
Thank you for this Bishop and the Global Joy team.
You have “arrived” in this space; in this moment of your Life.
Most inspired talk that I have heard since covid-19 pandemic
Bishop, your message is the gospel: Love, simple LOVE!

Encouraging to be reminded of enduring all the tough times, and what I did, even if it was by the skin of my teeth. Gratitude ❤️
My Name is shital patil live in Nagpur maharastra im in maharastriyan,
I am in South Africa. Once again we are divided as a result of greed and so many others with selfish motives. This fostered within me, the renewed energy of the importance of a micro community of support.
And Im all the way from South Africa, thank You Thank You Thank You
We have traveled The Way for many years in various places of God’s Creation. I stepped into my 88th year on Sunday. It is comforting and encouraging that I am being drawn by Christ, who calls me onward from the future. I welcome a conversation to share what the previous statement means for you and me.
Wonderful! Really uplifting!
Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! May all our hearts sing just like yours!!
I am fully agreed what you said. You inspired me a lot. We need to support each other of this time of uncertainly. Thank you very much.
