Noel Paul Stookey, best-known as Paul in Peter, Paul and Mary, will play in Keene this fall at a benefit concert for United Campus Ministry to Keene State College. His program, “One Light, Many Candles,” is a multi-faith program in word and song created and performed by Noel Paul Stookey and his wife, the Rev. Elizabeth (Betty) Stookey, former Chaplain of nearby Northfield Mount Hermon School.
The couple will present “One Light, Many Candles” at 4:00pm on Sunday, November 18, at The United Church of Christ in Keene, located downtown at 23 Central Square. Tickets are available now for $20/person. They are available online at www.ucckeene.org or at the United Church of Christ office between 9:00am and 1:00pm on weekdays (603-352-4136).
Betty and Noel Paul Stookey will also offer a “Meet and Greet” session following the concert to discuss the program and a variety of topics, as well as answer questions. A special ticket ($10/person) is required. “One Light, Many Candles” reflects the diversity and integrity of individual faith seeking a global spiritual community. Max Carter, PhD, of Guilford College in Indiana writes this about “One Light, Many Candles:” Betty and Noel Paul Stookey blessed the Guilford College community with their deeply moving “One Light, Many Candles” program. Combining Betty’s insightful and dynamic words about the power of God’s revelation through the multi-faith community and Noel’s guitar and vocals, the presentation touched our hearts and inspired us to see our religious diversity as a source of strength – leading us to delight in that of God in everyone.” The Rev. Gary Vencil of Brooksville, Maine says: “Betty’s reflections and Paul’s music led us to an experience of and respect for unity in diversity, and opened our hearts and minds to an insightful and productive conversation after the presentation.” The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
