“One Light, Many Candles” Concert Coming to Brunswick
On Saturday, September 23rd at 7pm, The Rev. Betty Stookey and Noel Paul Stookey will be hosted by First Parish Church of Brunswick to share their, One Light, Many Candles, a program of readings and music that reflect the diversity and integrity of individual faith while seeking a global spiritual community. Their performance will be in First Parish’s historic sanctuary as part of their 300 Years on The Way celebration of the church’s 300th anniversary. Admission is free for all ages.
Elizabeth and Noel Paul Stookey have been working together for over 50 years, as husband and wife, as parents, as business partners and activists, and as two people constantly questioning how the spiritual informs the day-to-day realities of life-in both a small personal way and a larger global way.
Noel is a singer-songwriter and the “Paul” of Peter, Paul, and Mary. He has been writing songs that reflect on the political, cultural, sociopolitical and spiritual dynamics of all of our collected stories for decades. Betty is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ who has ministered and counseled many, including, as chaplain of a school, over a thousand students of many faiths ranging from Buddhist and Christian, to Muslim and Jewish.
Recognizing Love as the common calling to many different faiths, Betty and Noel’s presentation continues to evolve by referencing expressions of the Divine from a myriad of spiritual leaders and literature of many cultures. The program shifts dynamically from the spoken word to the sung word and back again, with Betty reading and Noel singing.
