Sing Your Heart Out at Glide
Lately I’ve felt more like singing. I’ve wanted to use my voice (open up that 5th chakra). I’ve wanted to celebrate out loud. Open my heart. Let loose these vocal chords. A little while back on the Sunday before MLK Jr. Day I went with my friend Jamaica to Glide Memorial Church to celebrate the life and work of Doctor King and to sing from our hearts with the church and the gospel choir.
Now I don’t have a history of going to church much, even though I went to a Jesuit university. And I didn’t go regularly to church growing up, even though my family was technically Christian. But then again, Glide’s not your average church.
Although Glide is a Methodist church it has a policy of inclusion of all creeds, colors, sexual orientations and socioeconomic situations. There’s a little sermonizing and there’s A LOT of clapping and standing and singing.
I recommend it highly as an uplifting, fun and expressive way to spend a Sunday morning. There are two sessions, one at 9AM and another at 11AM. It’s a full house so come early if you want a great seat; otherwise take what you can get.
Inspire yourself and sing. Feel a sense of connection and community. Check out Glide sometime when looking for something empowering to do on Sunday in San Francisco. It left a golden glow in my heart the whole day. It seems to have that effect on people.
