The holiday season and long nights of winter can amplify feelings of grief and loss. Whether you have recently lost a loved one, or it’s been years, their absence can make the Christmas season difficult. Missing a loved one, facing significant family changes or illness, and navigating job losses or job changes are just a few things that can take the joy from the season.
The Winter Solstice just before Christmas is the longest night of the year. From there, each day offers more light. Our Longest Night Service is a different Christmas service – one of scripture, music, quiet reflection, and candle lighting to drive away darkness and help heal the wounds of loss.
