A Service of Remembrance at Christmas
Life is hard. It is also beautiful. For many people, Christmas is a bittersweet time of year. It is a time for remembering both persons and events that have been a part of our lives in the past, but that are now changed or gone. During this time of year, with the longest nights and increasingly cold-er days, you are invited to join us at Church of the Messiah on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. for a Service of Remembrance at Christmas, with Celtic Eucharist.
All may not seem joyous and merry at this Christmas time for you or other’s you love. Those who grieve at the loss of a loved one or have been diagnosed with a serious illness or are caretaking for another may find this a painful time. We may bring our wounds, our losses, disappointments, worries and our doubts to this holy place – the church. Through prayer, song, reflection, silence, candlelight, and the sharing of a holy meal, the Service of Remembrance will offer a special opportunity to acknowledge and remember that special someone or situation that saddens your heart.
Allow the coming light of Christ to brighten your path. Join us at 7 pm on 12/17 in this holy place, that we may receive the gift of God’s infinite, healing love. And may we look toward the future with hope.
