Our Offering

Reverend Elizabeth Stookey: One Light Many Candles
The readings for the program have been carefully chosen to highlight, with specific examples, our similarities rather than our differences. They include quotes interspersed with Rev Stookey's thoughtful insights.
Noel Paul Stookey: One Light Many Candles
As a companion to the readings, much of the musical material chosen refers to Love as the all-defining center of our lives. We have found the use of lyrical metaphor to be an especially important means of allowing each listener/attendee to interpret the spiritual messages of the music in personal terms.
Audience: One Light Many Candles
Connection with Community
A ONE LIGHT, MANY CANDLES presentation welcomes a diversity of belief. Those attending an OLMC event soon discover they have forged a long lasting trust within their communities that parallels the lessons contained in the program itself.
