Church: The Ultimate Place To Party?

Is church the ultimate place to party? That seems like the case at the `EpiscoDisco,' at least.

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You don’t have to be on your best behavior at church anymore – it’s now THE place to party.

The Episco Disco is a monthly shindig at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral where art and music fills the church and attendees are encouraged to let lose.

Reverend Bertie Pearson is an Episcopalian priest who uses his background as a DJ and musician to host the event, which takes place tomorrow (Jun. 25).

He says the Episco Disco really looks to embrace people for who they are and explains, “We want people to encounter a sacred space in a way they can totally be themselves. They don’t have to act, dress, or talk differently.”

Rev. Pearson says the worship service is “beyond a discotheque” and is more about exploring and enjoying church in a new light.

However, there’s no dancing on the pews involved, even at the “ultra-progressive” Episcopalian church.
