WAYFARING: SUMMER 2014 SERVICES
Can you recall a moment in your life when something unexpected happened that changed you in some measurable or unmeasurable way? When you found yourself taking “the road less traveled?” The theme for this summer’s lay led services is wayfaring. Over the course of the summer members of the fellowship will discuss those moments in their lives or in the life of Long Island that made a difference in the journey of their lives.
August 24 – "Take Me with You" – Rev. Margie Allen
Rev. Margie closes out the Summer Sunday Service Series on “Wayfaring” in collaboration with Herstory youth writers. Learning to tell the story of your journey in a way that dares others to come along, blazes a new trail through your history that shapes both way and wayfarer anew.
Special Tribute to Joni Mitchell's Miles of Aisles Concert Album - Friday, Sept. 12 - 8 p.m.
Some of Long Islands's finest musicians, including Dallas Louis, Annie Mark, Marci Geller and Rorie Kelly will join the Claudia Jacobs Band in celebrating the fortieth anniversary of one of Joni Mitchell’s biggest selling records! Grounds and Sounds fans still talk about Claudi's last Joni tribute, so this is a show you don't want to miss.
More to be announced shortly!
David Brooks is a multi-faceted musician – a pianist, violinist, violist, composer, and teacher. As a performer, he plays a repertoire ranging from Alkan to Zwilich, spanning the avant-garde and neglected romantics, as well as the established greats. David has performed across the United States and Europe and after a performance at Boston's Gardner Museum, the Boston Globe called his playing "especially lush." Compass News said of another performance, "Brooks left the audience stunned and speechless."
