Blue Christmas Worship For Those Who Mourn

Blue? Yes, blue as in the blues. As in “I am feeling blue.”

Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other disease that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations make parties and joviality painful for many people in our congregations and communities.

There is a growing attentiveness to the needs of people who are blue at Christmas. On Saturday, Dec. 16 at 2:00 p.m. we create a place of worship for people living through dark times. Our service is reflective, accepting where we really are, and praying for healing and hope.
