What is a Blue Christmas Service?
Curious about our upcoming Blue Christmas Service? Wondering what it is? 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 dis-ease that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations that make parties and joviality painful for many people in our congregation and community. Here at Central we are mindful to the needs of people who are blue at Christmas. Increasing numbers of churches are creating sacred space for people living through dark times. Our Blue Christmas/Longest Night Service will be reflective, accepting of where we really are, and holding out healing and hope through the love of Christ. Please plan to join us in this worship opportunity on this year’s Winter Solstice, Wednesday December 21st, at 6:30 p.m.
