Christmas is a time of joy and celebration. Yet for many of us the holiday season brings a sense of sadness and grief as well. On Thursday, December 21, we will offer a special service to acknowledge the difficult emotions of the seasons. There will be a contemplative service of readings and music, a time to pray individually with our pastors, receive an anointing with oil, and an opportunity to walk the labyrinth. All are welcome to find comfort and hope.
