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. Separation from loved ones through distance or death, loss of a relationship, personal illness, loneliness, or financial stress can make this “season of light” a time of darkness.
On Friday evening, December 21, we will offer a special service to acknowledge the difficult emotions of the season and offer a place for blessing and reconciliation. There will be a contemplative service of readings and beautiful 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.
