The Longest Night Service – December 21, 6:30 p.m.
A brief 45-minute Longest Night Service will be held on Wednesday December 21st at 6:30 p.m. The Christmas season holds for many the vexing memories of loved ones who are no longer present. For some the full joy of the season is muted by those memories and the loneliness that accompanies them. December 21st marks the day of the Winter Solstice – the shortest day – 9:15 hrs. of sunlight. It is the day with the longest darkness. It is the day that is the prelude to the coming of the light. We will gather in the sanctuary for a service of remembrance and support. There will times for prayerful reflection, for sharing stories that bring us to smiles and to tears. There will be readings and silence and comforting music. We invite those who have recently lost loved ones or who want to remember family members and friends whose memory becomes more vivid at this Christmas season to join us for this service.
