Blue Christmas Service

Time: 5:00 PM -
Location: Harbor Church

Blue Christmas Service, 5pm, Friday, December 21st 

 

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. There is a growing attentiveness to the needs of people who are blue at Christmas. Increasing numbers of churches are creating sacred space for people living through dark times. Such services are reflective, accepting where we really are, and holding out healing and hope. Worship service is on the longest night of the year, which falls on or about December 21st, the Winter Solstice.
