Events


June 24: Colors of Kindness. On Sunday morning, June 24 at 10:30 AM Bill will lead a family service he designed especially for Union Chapel in the Grove on Shelter Island. This will mark his third annual family service. The first focused on Hope inspired by the stain glass windows in the church. Last summer the service was entitled "The Wisdom of the Heart". This year will focus on the power of kindness and how colors can support its expression. These services bring together the telling of world folk tales and Bible stories, the singing of songs and a variety of readings including poetry, proverbs from around the world and passages from the Bible with the notion that all of these can help us come to a clearer understanding of the theme. Each year Bill composes a new song specifically for the service. The service is open to the public.
