JANUARY 2018

  • Wednesdays, Jan. 17, 6:30 p.m.: Centering Prayer,  Sophia House, 719 West Main St., Endicott, NY.
    This form of meditation centers on resting in the presence of God.

  • Friday, Jan. 26, 7:00 p.m.: Deeper Than the Skin — Building Bridges With Music, a concert with Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway, Sanctuary, First Congregational Church 30 Main Street, Binghamton. Suggested donation: $20 ($15 students)

    Born three days apart, Reggie and Greg share ancestry through the same portal of history in Richmond, Va. They are on a pilgrimage together to uncover the racial divisions in America that started them in two different worlds, but also discover the amazing bonds of music, respect, admiration and shared vision that have brought them together.

    Deeper Than The Skin is a concert / presentation that explores their unique history as a White man from the capital of the Confederacy and a Black man whose maternal ancestor was a slave on a plantation just outside of Richmond. It’s an electric musical presentation.
    Reggie Harris is a folk singer and the music education director of the Living Legacy Project of UUA. He is a Woodrow Wilson Scholar and has led hundreds of programs on race and social justice, both as a solo artist and in a duo with his wife, Kim Harris.

    Greg Greenway is a singer/songwriter best known as part of the acclaimed folk trio Brother Sun. His “In the Name of Love,” a lead-in to the U2 classic, “Pride,” was the #5 song on the Folk DJ list in 2013. It has become a defining piece on his journey to becoming an international artist capable of addressing sensitive topics like race in a way that connects audiences to their humanity while entertaining them at the same time.

    The suggested donation for the concert is $20, $15 for students.

  • Sunday, Jan. 28, 6:00 p.m.: Taizé, The Eden Room, First Congregational Church 30 Main Street, Binghamton. The Taizé prayer service combines scripture, chanting and silent prayer into a beautiful, communal meditation.
