Blue Christmas Service

December 21 at 6:00pm

A service for people who are having trouble feeling “in the spirit” of Christmas, whether because of the recent (or anticipated death) of a family member or friend, the difficulty or end of a marriage,
health concerns, the loss of work, or a move away from the place that’s been home for a time. At a time when many people are focused on choosing gifts, planning special meals, and singing upbeat Christmas carols, it can be hard to reconcile with feelings of sadness, anger or loss.

This will be a time when we can, with others, acknowledge the “blue” feelings we have at Christmas time, the reasons for them, and offer them to God.

Some of you may not be experiencing similar feelings at this time of year but you probably know people who are. Please tell them about this special Service…and invite them…and accompany them. Your quiet, caring, companionship might be the most meaningful and needed gift they will receive this Christmas.
