GLIDE Instagram
As one of our busiest days of the year draws to a close, we'd like to share a serendipitous find that we discovered in the archives today. In 1997, LIFE magazine featured GLIDE in a long piece entitled "A Church for the Twenty-First Century." Here is photo of Rev. Cecil, doin' his thing and handing out grocery bags to the community 20 years ago. At events like Grocery Bag Giveaway, our committed staff, community partners, dedicated volunteers & Tenderloin neighbors work side by side to remind our city, and our country, of the persistence of human goodness and unconditional love.
