On Wednesday, December 18th, at 7:00 pm we will have our traditional Longest Night EvenSong service.
This service is often called “Blue Christmas” and is a Western Christian tradition that happens on or around the longest night of the year, usually December 21, the Winter Solstice.
A Blue Christmas service recognizes the loss and loneliness that can be felt during the holidays and offers comfort for those grieving and struggling to find joy and hope during the season.
This beautiful service offers a respite during this busy season and helps us all reflect on on the true meaning of Christmas.
