Ascent 253 – The Non-Concert

Friday night, Sue asked if I would like attend a concert at the local Unitarian Universalist church. They’re a cool non-denominational group and often have some great get-togethers.

I got home about 7:30 due to some last minute issues at the office and the usual fun on the Cross Bronx Expressway. After a quick dinner, we decided to head for the concert and enjoy a little music and fellowship.

The church is a beautiful building set on some sprawling acreage near Manhasset NY. As we entered the building, we followed the sound into the main congregational hall and took a pew.

There was a band on stage albeit they were just sitting there with their instruments as one of the ministers was giving her Soulful Sundown sermon.

As we missed the beginning, the message was a little cryptic and we didn’t really get the point.

Being one to take advantage of an opportunity, I did settle into the energy of the space, meditate for a bit and give thanks for all that I have in my journey.

The band did strike up one song before the candle was extinguished and the session concluded.

The congregation then moved into the hall where events are often held for coffee and cookies. It looked like the stage was set for someone to perform but nobody came forth to play.

After 1 cup of coffee and 2 chocolate chip cookies, we opted to go for a stroll on the beach instead.

Overall the evening was a great transition from work to weekend, despite the elusive concert.
