Memorial Church has historically been an important center of spiritual and ceremonial life at Stanford University since the church was dedicated in 1903. It is open to anyone, wherever you may be on your spiritual journey. Please join us at University Public Worship, Sunday mornings at 10:00 am in this spectacular and sacred venue.
Bishop Gene Robinson, retired Episcopal bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire will be preaching at University Public Worship in historic Memorial Church. Bishop Robinson, the first openly gay bishop consecrated in the Episcopal Church, is the author God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage. The film, Love Free or Die, a Sundance Film Festival 2012 award winner, tells his compelling story and parallels the conversation underway in many American churches about whether gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are equal to heterosexuals in the eyes of God and equal under the law. Bishop Robinson is currently a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress in Washington, DC.
Music by University Organist, Dr. Robert Huw Morgan and the Memorial Church Choir.
A lunch discussion and book signing will be held in the Round Room after the service.
Free and open to the public
