Blue Christmas Service
For Those Who Find Rejoicing Hard Work
The Christmas season can be difficult for many reasons: grief, separation, illness, uncertainty... In this service of light, come to find hope and healing, to honour a loved one's memory, or to support someone else.
7:00-8:00 PM Sunday Dec 11th
CPC Sanctuary 177 Beverly St (Baldwin Street entrance)
Downtown Toronto 2 blocks north of the AGO
This gentle, contemplative service is for those who may not feel particularly “merry” or “bright.” Christmas can be a difficult time of year for many reasons. The memory of a loved one no longer with us, the weariness of ill health, the anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the pain of isolation—all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of those joyfully celebrating.
Through songs, readings, prayers and candle lighting, this service offers sacred space to acknowledge and honour our feelings and to know that we are not alone in them. Come for yourself or invite someone else who may need encouragement.
