Earthquakes, Chile and Queer Spirit: Aidan Dunn preaches at MCCSF.

The following is from Aidan Dunn of San Francisco. Aidan is a junior in Religious Studies at Stanford University and has recently returned from a semester in Chile, where he worked with MOVILH – the Movement for the Integration and Liberation of Lesbian Gay and Transgender People in Chile.

Dear Friends,

I have agreed to preach at the Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco (MCCSF) about my experiences (spiritual and otherwise) in Chile, pre-and post-earthquake, on Sunday, 11 April, 2010. It would be great to see you there! Services are at 11am and 7pm…

MCCSF is located at 150 Eureka St, x 18th St., in the Castro, San Francisco. For directions, or more information about the church, please go to

MCCSF is an interfaith queer spiritual community. The 11am service is more “traditional” Christian worship with traditional hymns; the evening is more high-energy, gospel-style music, and more interfaith. It would be great to see you at either one; please let me know if you can come! I hope I can put together a sermon that will make the trip worth your while…

Best Regards,

Aidan Dunn
