Finding the spirit in the Beatles
Don’t miss the Congregational Church of Patchogue’s “The Spirituality of the Beatles White Album” this Sunday, Oct. 18. The event, hosted by the Rev. Dwight Lee Wolter, will feature the Magical Orchestra and assorted friends.
After about three months of preparing for the gathering, Wolter said he is just about ready to present another one of his events. He hopes the popularity of the special double album will draw a large crowd. All the proceeds, he explained, go to fund the church’s soup kitchen and food pantry. The event costs $10 but no one will be turned away. “Ten dollars or more or less,” he said.
The Beatles were chosen once again due to their multigenerational draw and interesting spiritual life. One of his personal favorites as well, he said the album features unbelievable songs with a very strong spiritual message that will be explored.
Wolter looks to question the meaning behind the songs not in a religious context but a spiritual one. He said to attend the event you don’t need to be Christian or religious, just enjoy the music.
“Come on in, you are welcome,” he said. “This is not a Christian band; it’s the Beatles, but spirit is ever present. Music touches people in ways that words can never go.”
The event will be held at 7 p.m. The Congregational Church of Patchogue is located at 95 East Main Street.
