Join us for a Blue Christmas service on Thursday, December 15th at 7:00 p.m. As we approach the longest night of the year on winter solstice, we await the birth of an inner light and dare to imagine that God will come to us again. The Blue Christmas service is traditionally a time to acknowledge the underside of “the most wonderful time of the year.” Together we are mindful of the stress, the amplified grief of loss, the sorrows of those living on life’s edge, and the realities of a world in which violence is a lived experience for too many. We will lean into the ancient lament of our tradition as well as God’s comfort. This service will meet us in our grief and struggle, and lead us out toward the light with healing music, words that nurture, and the warmth of community. Marian Drake, Susan Saudek, and David Greer will offer personal testimonies, and Dennis Turner and Michael Hopkins will serve as our musicians. Join us and tend to your soul. In person and by Zoom with this link.
