Beyonce is the proud owner of a church in New Orleans.
The House of God Church was up for sale for $850,000.
The 100-year old 7500 square foot stone structure is near her sister Solange’s house but it hasn’t been used as a church for years.
Just weeks ago, a reverend named Malcolm Young (seriously) in San Francisco used the music of Beyonce to take people on a stairway to heaven instead of a highway to hell.
For our April 25 Vine worship service, the Rev. Yolanda Norton, Assistant Professor of Old Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary, will be preaching. Rev. Norton created a “Beyoncé and the Hebrew Bible” class at the Seminary that draws on Beyoncé’s music to raise awareness about the spiritual experience of Black women and the issues they face in our society.
We have been surprised by how much attention we have been receiving about this and do expect a large attendance at this worship service. Your friends may ask you about this. You might want to remind them that God is in all the world and that Beyoncé is made in God’s image. The church has not treated women of color fairly and it is time to face this truth.
