MANY TRADITIONS #UNITEDINSPIRIT
During Pride season, United in Spirit is encouraging inclusive spiritual communities to host a specially-designated pride religious service or event.
We want the city, the world, and especially the queer community to know that the San Francisco Bay Area has many diverse churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious communities which welcome and affirm queer people.
United in Spirit already hosts a list of inclusive congregations on our website and we want to promote these special pride services, so that those who have felt pushed away from their faith, may be welcomed once again.
If your congregation wishes to participate in this campaign, simply contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org

Sunday June 23rd marks the 50th anniversary to the day of the summer night in 1969 that 16 year old Marsha Stevens wrote the much loved Jesus music classic, “For Those Tears I Died.” Marsha — who the encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music has dubbed “The Mother of CCM,” and who was the first CCM artist to publicly come out as gay back in 1980 (!!) — will be at Oak Life Church in Oakland this Sunday to celebrate the day with a special 50th anniversary performance for their young, growing congregation.
For our first gathering of the summer, June 23 at 530pm, we will explore Identity + Sexuality through the lens of our LGBTQ neighbors and friends. The evening will feature a communal sharing of stories from various LGBTQ voices. We will also be featuring Matt Nightingale (bio below) as our guest artist for the evening. Matt will be sharing about his journey with Identity and Sexuality through a few songs he has written as well as leading us together in songs of hope and freedom.
WE WANT TO INCLUDE YOU!
Please email and let us know your plans.
