For those who have experienced loss, the holidays can be a particularly painful time, stirring up grief in acute ways. As a result, churches worldwide have adopted the practice of having a “Blue Christmas” or a “Longest Night” service during the Advent season. In the Northern hemisphere, this service is often observed on December 21st, the Winter Solstice, which is the longest night of the year.
A Longest Night service is designed to provide space for prayer, reflection, and remembrance amidst the holiday hustle and bustle. In this pandemic season of life, we imagine that grief and loss will be magnified and nearly universal. Therefore, we hope that this worship opportunity can be a gift to you, providing a space of calm, quiet, and healing.
Please join us on December 21st to center ourselves in God, our Peace, our Strenght, our Healer, and our Hope.
