Blue Christmas Prayer Service
Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 7pm
At Grace Lutheran Church (521 Providence Road, Chesapeake, VA 23325)
While Advent is a season of hope and Christmas is a season of joy, not everyone feels hopeful or like celebrating. Grief, illness, aging, depression, loneliness, unemployment, and loss are magnified. Even those who are not struggling with losses may feel the stress of preparations and expectations around Christmas time. A Longest Night/Blue Christmas service may provide a time and place of solace during the often frenetic days surrounding the celebration of Christmas. We come together seeking healing and room to share grief, sadness, loneliness, or confusion when these emotions often feel out of place during the holidays.
Everyone is welcome to attend this service that will include lament, prayer, silence, and the assurance that God is with all of us during the dark winter and throughout the year!
