Kanye West marked a full year of Sunday Service this past weekend on Sunday. He decided to celebrate the anniversary by taking his choir along with him to Los Angeles’ Skid Row. Ye and his choir pulled up to the Union Rescue Mission homeless shelter in downtown LA.

Kanye used his time celebrating the anniversary by delivering a sermon that touched upon a number of topics, including how it saved his life.

“A lot of times people say, ‘Thank you Ye for Sunday Service.’ I’m saying thank God. This thing saved my life/ This thing was an alternative to opioids. This thing was an alternative to pornography.”

He then touched on the topic of the possibility of things being taken out of context when speaking out passionately about something. He was alluding to the controversy surrounding T.I.‘s revelation of taking his daughter to the gynecologist for a yearly check to make sure that she is still a virgin.

“They tried to play T.I., but he’s talking about something that’s God-approved,” he began. “It’s 30 states that still got the death penalty. Thou shall not kill. But, we be cool with that.”

He also went on to speak on the homelessness epidemic taking place in Los Angeles, encouraging those in attendance: “We can find a solution – worldwide solution.”
