Blue Christmas: Devotions of Light in a Season of Darkness is a study of scripture, meditation, prayer, and action.
 
Christmas and all that comes with it, is sometimes called, the most wonderful time of the year, but for those that are grieving, being told to be of good cheer, often just makes it worse. And this year, with fewer parties for hosting and friends perhaps not coming to call, our heart’s may not feel like glowing at all. For many—and perhaps for more of us than would care to admit it—the season of Advent and Christmas transports our greatest fears and losses into a time when others seem to be enjoying life to the fullest.
 
There are several ways to participate:
-Study the devotions on your own.
-All of the above

Blue Christmas Service

Not all Christmases are white; some are Blue.
But if we are willing to first sit with our fears, all of our Christmases—even the darkest ones-can be filled with honesty and hope.
Don’t miss the Blue Christmas worship service.
This service is especially designed to voice and hope to those who are grieving, or who are experiencing other types of loss or feelings of exclusion. It a a time of light, reflection, and prayer.
