In the midst of the joy and celebration of Christmas, it’s easy for us to forget that in our own community there are those for whom the idea of Christmas joy is very difficult this year.
Personal crises such as death of a loved one, long term illness, the loss of a job, strained relationships, etc. make it difficult to participate in celebratory events. For people facing difficult situations, the holidays can bring the blues. As in “I am feeling blue.” Not everyone is up and cheery for Christmas events.
Join us on Thursday, December 21st at 7:00 p.m. for a special “Blue Christmas” service. The reasons for coming are many. We gather in the midst of suffering to remember God is good. God is strong. God is near. We are not alone, and we have every reason to hold on to hope.
