Many churches are dark six nights a week. However, in one, 24 hour period at the Congregational Church of Patchogue ~ we hosted a Performing Arts Latino Festival comprised of painters from seven countries, five dance troupes, poets, musicians, and a feature length, newly-released, independent Ecuadorian film. We also hosted the New Inlet Chamber Orchestra performance of Carmen, with guest classical guitarist, James Piorkowski. And in that 24 hour period, we also held a simple and serene worship service and baptized three beautiful children. God’s arms are open wide to receive us. May we also open our arms ~ and hearts ~ to receive each other.
Peace & Other Blessings,
Rev. Dwight Lee Wolter
