Longest Night – Blue Christmas Service, December 21

Christmas is for the most part a time of celebration and joy. For many, however, this is a difficult time of year. Many people are carrying significant weights: grief, loss, depression, anxiety, financial stress, unemployment, uncertainty, aging parents, sick children, recent diagnoses, unknown illnesses. The public tone of the season does not resonate with many people’s private experience.

In various churches Blue Christmas services have been celebrated to offer special recognition of the struggles that many people face during this season. Its somber tone also testifies to the struggles of Mary, Joseph and Jesus that are often overlooked. On December 21, on Winter solstice, the longest day of the year, we invite you to join us for a Blue Christmas service at Messiah, where the struggles that we all face are acknowledged, and a safe place of rest, comfort and healing is provided. The service starts at 7pm this Friday evening of December 21. Come join us.
