The Spirituality of the Beatles

If you attend the Congregational Church of Patchogue this Sunday (Jan 13) you are in for a different type of service than you might expect. At 7:00 pm the Church will present a unique program called “The Spirituality of the Beatles”.

Miles to Dayton will be performing songs from The Beatles’ extensive catalog and Pastor Dwight Wolter will be discussing the links between music and spirituality. Wolter is known to many in the music community for his public speaking on issues that are relevant to secular and religious Long Islanders alike. He has earned a reputation for actively addressing issues such as civil rights, hunger, and racism and bullying within the community, with a compassionate and sensible approach that tends to unite rather than divide his listeners.

Miles to Dayton is a band that increasingly needs no introduction. With three successful albums under their belt and recent high-profile appearances in the Great South Bay Music Festival and WFUV’s On Your Radar, Long Islanders have had to make peace with the possibility of sharing their hometown heroes with the rest of the world. The band’s music has been tight from day one, but has continued to evolve into a dynamic, heart-filling folk rock sound.

This event will be the first in a series focusing on the relationship between music and spirituality. If the future events are anywhere near as promising as this one, this series is going to quickly become a community favorite.
