Blue Christmas Service - December 18th - 7PM

What is a “Blue Christmas Service?”

Blue Christmas, or Longest Night, is a service of worship designed for people suffering with pain, loss,   isolation and grief in the Advent season. On this night we remember those for whom the holidays are not joyful; people are lonely, in mourning, feeling alienated and cast apart from family celebrations; they are experiencing depression and sadness and yet are often compelled to put on a happy face for others,    denying true feelings. The service is often held on or around December 18, close to the “longest night” of the year.

Many of us are acquainted with the paradox of the Advent and Christmas seasons – a time when we feel we are supposed to celebrate hope, love, joy and peace, and yet a time that can also be full of depression, sadness and grief. The Blue Christmas offers special recognition of the struggles that many people face during this season. It’s somber tone also testifies to the struggles of Mary, Joseph and Jesus that are often overlooked. By offering this service of worship to all who seek we can acknowledge the struggles that we all face while providing a safe place of rest, comfort and healing. A Blue Christmas or Longest Night service may include any elements that convey a sense of welcome, trust and understanding in what can be a very painful time of the year. The service is held in the evening as a special worship opportunity of the church and community. It includes Candle lighting, meditative music and prayers for healing that create a welcoming worship space for those who are hurting or wish to remind themselves of persons who are. Bring or tell a friend who may need this experience this Christmas.

For some of us Christmas can be a time of stress and anxiety. Joy and cheer sometimes are overwhelmed by sadness. Chuck talks about "Blue Christmas" and what we can do to help others who feel the weight of the season.
