Song & Story Programs for Spiritual Gatherings


Bill & Eli often share their songs and stories at Sunday morning sermons and weekday workshops at various gatherings. Primarily,they have performed for Unitarian Universalist, Center for Spiritual Living (Religious Science) and Metaphysical Chapels, but are very open to presenting their messages with any, and all, denominations.
Currently, they have six separate 25-30 minute song and story programs (see synopsis' below), Each of these theme based programs has story related to the song creating a powerful and uplifting experience and message. They are always glad to include a Sunday morning service onto the tour itinerary. If desired, they would also be more that happy to lead all of the music, that would include them leading the congregation during the musical prelude, offering and postlude.
These presentations are perfect to fill an open pulpit on Sundays due to ministerial vacations as well as for lay led congregations.
As for weekday workshops, in order to fill a 1 to 1 ½ hour time-frame, It is suggested a question and answer period follow the presentation.
Since music has an unique way of reaching out to people, and since Bill & Eli have a sizable fan-base, a fringe benefit is that attendance at well-publicized music services is often 20-30% higher than average.

Both of your are beautiful, loving souls, and it was truly an inspiration to meet you both.

Charley Barcelo (Community Unitarian Universalist Church - New Smyrna Beach, FL) - I wish to sincerely thank you for your presentation this past Sunday.

It is amazing just how deep the picture is. Your presentation and the inspiration, which it portrayed, will stay deeply imbedded in my mind. I look forward to the next time we are together.
