“I have learned things in the dark that I could never have learned in the light, things that have saved my life over and over again, so that there is really only one logical conclusion. I need darkness as much as I need light.”
Barbara Brown Taylor, Learning to Walk in the Dark
Christmas can be a difficult time. It may be weighted down with grief, carry the anguish of broken relationships, the uncertainty of money struggles, the weariness of ill health, and the pain of loneliness. Where can we find light in the darkness?
The Longest Night Service on December 22 provides space for all that the season brings. You are invited to join in for a time of music, readings, candle lighting, and prayer which will acknowledge these feelings and help us begin to find a way to find comfort in God and in others.
The evening begins at 7:00PM. If you have questions, concerns, or are seeking further pastoral care, please contact Pastor Ann.
