Beychella is so two weeks ago. Now it’s all about a Beyonce mass
A California church prayed at the alter of Queen Bey by holding a special service featuring the music of the pop diety.
Nearly one thousand worshippers attended the mass at the Grace Cathedral, an Episcopal church in San Francisco, which was meant to uplift the experiences of women and attract a younger following.
Beyonce’s songs such as, “Listen,” “Freedom,” “Flaws and All,” and “I Was Here,” as well as the Destiny’s Child hit “Survivor, were included in the service.
The atypical mass also featured a speech by civil rights leader Ella Baker, as well as more traditional bible readings, a sermon and communion.
The mass was presided by Reverend Yolanda North, who also teaches a class entitled “Beyoncé and the Hebrew Bible” at a local seminary.
“When we talk about womanist biblical interpretation, Beyoncé felt like a natural fit,” Norton told the San Francisco Chronicle. “If we look at the trajectory of her person and her relationships, we can see so many issues black women face and how it can affect how we interpret the text.”
The Reverend also refuted the idea that the point of the service was to worship Beyonce.
“I know people think we’re worshipping Beyoncé. None of that is true,” Norton added. “This is a way to just have different kinds of conversation.”

Gay marriage in church has moved one step closer today, after the Scottish Episcopal Church voted to remove references to marriage only being between one man and woman in its Canon Law. The change – which must still be ratified next year – means that the Episcopalians could become the only Anglicans in the UK willing to marry people of the same-sex. It could have huge repercussions for Scotland. John McManus reports:
