Saturday, December 21st at 1:00 pm Two Saints will be offering a Blue Christmas Service.
What is Blue Christmas?
Blue Christmas, also called the Longest sleep is a day in the Advent season marking the longest night of the year. A church service is held which recognizes that the holidays are sometimes "blue" or filled with difficult feelings around painful life events such as death, disease, poverty, or abuse.
This worship service is traditionally held on or around the longest night of the year, which falls on or about December 21, the Winter Solstice. The Worship often includes opportunities for expression of grief and pain as well as an opportunity to focus on the promise of hope. The images of the winter solstice which include the longest night losing to the increasing longer day after midnight is a significant part of the imagery used in the elements of this particular worship event.
