Sext in the City: Part Two – church hopping n’ hoping

For two single women who worship at the altar of Mae West, Church Hopping to find single men proved to be exciting. They approached the task with a modicum of seriousness and a cavalier bent. They came across a quote they adopted for the exploration:

 “Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it.

Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is loveenjoy it.     Sai Baba

First Stop on the Top Five Best Places/Religious to Find Single Men:

Grace Cathedral, EvensongThursdays 5:15pm-6:000pm. Rose, a Roman Catholic Single, told the girls about  Evensong at Grace on Nob Hill. She raved about the unique, meditative experience of sitting in the sanctuary at the Cathedral listening to the cherubic voices of the Cathedral’s Men and Boys choir. Divine.    Bonus: The Big 4 at the Huntington Hotel across the street

Trinity Episcopal Church Some enchanted Evening? Great Date: Drop in to  Taize on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm at Trinity. An incredible experience in a church on a Wednesday evening. You’ve seen the impressive, massive red doors at Trinity. Prepare to be even more impressed. The hour-long experience involves chanting, prayer, readings (Rumi, the Bible, Thoreau) rapturous voices and exquisite, romantic candlelight. Tres romantique – date needed.

The Takeaway? The ladies of the light…subscribe to the “It is better to be looked over than overlooked” philosophy of Ms West (See below)

There wasn’t enough ‘looks over’ in the houses of worship they visited. Next!
