Christmas is not all merry and cheerful. For those who have lost loved ones or have had other traumatic life changes like divorce, health challenges, or loss of jobs, it can be tough. The season can be a reminder of our grief. We can’t be happy and “ho ho ho” every single minute. In the darkest part of the winter we gather to acknowledge these hard parts. We make space for our grief and reach out for healing to God and to one another at this Longest Night/Blue Christmas, Tuesday December 20 at 6 pm with candle lighting, readings, singing and prayer.
