14 Nov Blue Christmas
For many, the Christmas season is both hopeful and heavy … but the excitement and busyness of the season rarely affords space to acknowledge that. Blue Christmas is a type of gathering historically held on the winter solstice—the longest night and shortest day of the year—in recognition of the darkness and loneliness that many carry into this season of light.
We will be gathering right before the winter solstice for a simple service designed to acknowledge Jesus’ place in the “both/and”—the hopeful and the heavy, the joy and the loss, the celebration and the grief.
All are welcome.
