Sunday, December 17 at 4:30 p.m. Blue Christmas/Longest Night - a service of remembrance and hope for all who find rejoicing hard work. With harpist Gian Torrano Jacobs.
Christmas is a season of joy and hope. It is also a time when memories of the past and the reality of present experiences and situations can become overwhelming. The sorrow of losing a loved one, the ache of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation—all of these and more can make us feel very alone in the midst of all the celebrating and spending. We need time and space to acknowledge our sadness and concern and to find strength and hope.
We invite you to our traditional “Blue Christmas” service on December 17. With prayer, poetry, scripture and special music, we will acknowledge God’s presence for those who mourn and for those who struggle, while we remember that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness.
