Blue Christmas Service

Blue? Yes, blue as in the blues. As in “I am feeling blue.” Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other disease that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations make parties and joviality painful for many people in our congregations and communities.
This special service acknowledges that, for many people, Christmas is a time of loneliness, sorrow, alienation, and sadness. It offers a way for people to claim those feelings and still feel surrounded by the compassionate love of God. All are welcome.
