Longest Night is a worship service celebrated on December 21st, the winter solstice and longest night of the year.
While the Christmas season is often marked by expressions of joy, excitement, and happiness, this can often overshadow the pain and hurt many people experience during this season, when the world’s merriment puts their grief and sorrow in stark relief.
The Longest Night service — sometimes known as Blue Christmas — acknowledges that for many people Christmas is a time of loneliness, sorrow, alienation, sadness, discontent, busyness and preoccupation. This service offers a way for people to claim those feelings and still feel surrounded by the compassionate love of God.
This service will be held in the yurt and is centered on candle lighting, music and meaning-making. Please join us — wherever you are in your journey of faith, whatever it is you might be experiencing.
