Service Of The Longest Night

A Different Service Of Worship For Christma

The holidays can be difficult for us all: the stresses and strains of trying to offer a time of celebration take their toll. Many people find they have trouble feeling “in the spirit” of things, whether because of the recent (or anticipated) death of a family member or friend, the end of a marriage, the loss of work, or other trying change. Facing Christmas in a time of conflict and other terrors may make “being merry” a trying task.

This year we will be gathering together for A Service of the Longest Night. It is so named because of its proximity to the winter solstice – the longest night of the year. But the name is also fitting because – despite the trappings of gifts, special meals, and Christmas carols – the season can be darker than “normal” times of the year for those who struggle.
