Blue Christmas

We tend to characterize Advent and Christmas with feelings of joy and hope. But these do not reflect reality for so many people. The social norm to consume disturbs those yearning for good environmental stewardship; the pressure to be with family heightens the pain for those in mourning; the imperative to experience joy distresses those living with depression or Seasonal Affective Disorder. 

Join us on Friday, 12 December 2014 at 7:30pm for a service to recognize that joy does not come universally at this time of year. Of course there will be hope, and it will be responsible and authentic.
