Bishop William Swing at Sacred Cocktails this evening
Come to Sacred Cocktails this evening at 6:30: The Rt Rev William Swing is our guest. Bishop Swing is the President and Founder of the United Religions Initiative. Bishop Swing had the original vision of URI in 1993 in response to an invitation from the United Nations which asked him to host an interfaith service honoring the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. Bishop Swing served as the Episcopal Bishop of California from 1980 until his retirement in 2006. In that capacity, he was a national and international leader in response to the AIDS crisis, co-founded Episcopal Community Services to address San Francisco’s homeless problem, and co-founded Community Bank of the Bay to support local businesses and the economy.
Sacred Cocktails is part of the Community of Travelers and we meet at the Lookout Bar in the Castro every Monday night at 6:30 PM until 8 PM. The Lookout is at the corner of Market Street and 16th/Noe.
