Recently, I had the privilege of being at Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Fransisco. Thirty seconds into the celebration, I was on my feet, singing, smiling and crying simultaneously. I was lead by a choir composed of a large variety of socio-economic, race, gender identity, age, and physical abilities. From the music, to the visuals, announcements and preaching, the message was clear: EVERYONE was loved and valued.
How can we create a world where this experience is the rule instead of the exception?
