Brittany Howard - You'll Never Walk Alone

The gospel according to Gerry & The Peacemakers (sung by Brittany Howard):
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

How This Pastor-to-Be Found Jesus in Drag

"We have boxes for how to dress and how to talk.
We have boxes for what jobs to take and how to spend our money.
We have boxes for what ideas to believe and who to vote for.
We have boxes for who to spend time with and who to love.
We have boxes for who to be.
A lot of times, we pour our energy into meeting those expectations. If we’re not careful, we can start defining ourselves through a phantom, false version of ourselves all driven by one simple question: “What will the world think of me?” And before we know it, the boxes box us in.

Drag showed me that things could be different."

"We are, like every generation before us, are tasked with recapturing what the gospel is saying to us in this time and place. [...]
We are entering an incredible period of rebirth and growth. When I say growth, I don’t mean seeing more butts in pews or adding to your endowment. I mean growing in nearness to our creator until our very presence can become means of grace to a hungry world."
[ Rev. Lenny Duncan, "Dear Church"]

[03/18/21]   Dear Friends in Christ,

Like all of you, we are angry and heartbroken about the cold hearted murder of eight people in Atlanta, six of whom were Asian women. Furthermore, we are angry and heartbroken about the multiple acts of violence, targeted toward Asians, in our city and Bay Area and the lack of response from our city.

This crisis reflects the deep wounds of racism that has existed for far too long. From Chinese Exclusion Act,Japanese internment camps, 92' Los Angeles riots in Koreatown, to how our COVID rhetoric has fueled Asian bias. The murders in Atlanta were not an isolated incident, the violence toward Asian Americans on the streets of SF are not isolated incidents.

We commit again to the work of racial reconciliation and justice. The work that needs to be done is ongoing, the work of repentance and reconciliation is work that we will need to do our whole lives.

To begin, we invite you to:
- call your local officials to demand justice
- if you're able donate to these organizations: Red Canary Song, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Atlanta, Chinese Progressive Association in SF, Stop AAPI Hate, AAPI Community Fund
- if you're a white person, we invite you to find ways to amplify the voices of those who are not being heard. Educate yourself, join groups doing anti-racism work.
- attend bystander intervention trainings (check out the work of hollaback!)

There is nothing easy about all that is unfolding around us. I pray that we, as followers of Jesus, walk the way of love and join the work being done to change this world we live in.

Indigo Girls - Closer To Fine (Cities 97)

"God’s act of reconciliation is not mystical communion with the divine; nor is it a pietistic state of inwardness bestowed upon the believer. God’s reconciliation is a new relationship with people created by God’s concrete involvement in the political affairs of the world, taking sides with the weak and the helpless."

Will you be my refuge

And bring me sprigs of rosemary,
Be my sanctuary
'Til I can carry on
Carry on.

Progressive inclusive radical Christianity for you

We are a progressive and welcoming spiritual community in a changing city and neighborhood. We weave authentic Christian practices together with ancient spiritual practices and progressive theology to explore what it means to be a Christian in today’s San Francisco. We gather on Sundays and Wednesdays to use authentic Christian spiritual practices, helping to heal ourselves and the world around us. For a quick summary of coming services and events, please see our Facebook events page and the Cyprian's Center's Facebook events page.

We believe following Jesus and his message is about living in love, with compassion, and grace. Jesus and his message are counter-cultural and subversive and so are we. We’re not looking to get an A from God for giving the “right” answer about this or that theological belief. Rather, we aim to reflect God’s love for us in our daily lives. As our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said at the Royal Wedding in 2018, we:

“Imagine a world where love is the way. Imagine our homes and families, neighborhoods and communities, governments and nations, business and commerce where love is the way….When love is the way then no child will go to bed hungry in this world ever again, we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like a ever-flowing brook, poverty will become history, the earth will be a sanctuary, we will lay down our swords and shields down by the riverside to study war no more. When love is the way, there’s plenty good room for all of God’s children.”
