Spirituality is a River that Flows Both Ways

The Spirituality of the Beatles with Miles to Dayton (Music) and Dwight Lee Wolter (Narration): A Musical Contemplation of the Relationship Between Music, Musicians & Spirituality

A common misconception about churches and other houses of faith and tradition is that they are the keepers of morality, ethics, knowledge and goodness. Well, some are, and some aren't. My perspective is that spirituality flows both ways. You can come to receive insight, healing, wholeness etc. but you can also come to offer the same. It seems that some of those who come to a church or church event for the first time are sometimes more "spiritual" (compassionate, caring, sharing and other attributes) than some of those who welcome them. The Congregational Church of Patchogue has seen many, many people and groups come to the church who never intend to join the church or even attend a service on Sunday morning. They come to offer their gifts of music and joy that will benefit those in our community who are hungry, homeless and hurting in one way or another. Such is the situation on Sunday, January 13th at 7pm when the band, Miles To Dayton, will perform music at an event at the Congregational Church of Patchogue titled: The Spirituality of the Beatles. It is a contemplative concert that explores the relationship between music, musicians and spirituality. The suggested donation is $10 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. All proceeds go to the INN soup kitchens and the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless.
