"Blue Christmas" Service
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
The Advent and Christmas seasons are full of anticipation and joy for many, but not everyone is cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other disease that puts a question mark over the future, and other human situations make parties and joviality painful for some in our congregation and community.
In a slightly different format from previous years, we are offering a quiet service of prayer, reflection and song. Our prayer ministers will be available following the service for those who would appreciate a more focused time of intercession and healing. In a safe and sacred space we can acknowledge the realities of all our feelings in challenging days such that we can remember our reasonable and holy hope for life. “Light shines in the darkness and the darkness does not overcome it.”
ALL ARE WELCOME.
