With all the holly and jolly of Christmas, we sometimes just feel blue. If you are feeling down and need a place of rest and quiet, for comfort and hope, we invite you to this Longest Night/Blue Christmas service on Zoom.
December 21 marks the first official day of winter and the Winter Solstice. The days have been getting shorter and the nights longer. The Solstice marks the shortest day and longest night of the year which is why we refer to this service as the “Longest Night.” Longest Night, then, is a time to claim our comfort and hope. Just when we wonder how dark our lives and our world can get, the earth turns, and the days begin to lengthen.
Longest Night is also a time of reflection. This has been a year filled with darkness and light, despair and hope, sorrow and joy. We reflect on what we have lost this year and what we have lost. We recall our challenges and what we have learned. We pause and reconnect with the One in whom we live and move and have our being.
With the promise of increased daylight, we gather our hopes for tomorrow and set intentions for the New Year. Join us for candle-lighting, quiet, healing prayers, scripture and music to be in God's presence and be reminded that God’s Word comes to shine light into your life and our world. Everyone is welcome.
