If you live in Northern California, you have no doubt heard of Glide Memorial Church here in San Francisco. They do some many wonderful things there! This Saturday they will play host to an interfaith service that I will be attending. It's “Standing on the Side of Love: An Interfaith No On 8 Celebration" It is so very important that as people of faith we stand together in support of marriage equality. Join us for this interfaith service next Saturday, All Saints’ Day and together let us pray for justice and for the defeat of Proposition 8. Music, speeches, prayers, and readings from Scripture will be part of this celebration. A reception will follow. All are invited! It's coming up on Saturday, November 1st at 11am at Glide Memorial United Methodist Church which is at 330 Ellis Street here in San Francisco.
Glide is one of the many different churches that are doing so many marvelous things. Today I won't be at my own church, but rather I will be heading off to Lodi in just a few minutes to hear a dear friend preach and another dear friend celebrate mass at a church there. I am really looking forward to today!
Tonight, another church and another kind of service. Back here in San Francisco I will see two men get married in the church where they service, in the presence of God of of their congregation. Praise God from whom all blessing flow!
