Blue Christmas


We’re hearing news of Blue Christmas worship services being offered around the regional council, and from the national United Church of Canada moderator. In a year so full of challenges, in a season that is about Light, yet feels so dark, we’d like to highlight Blue Christmas services here, to help you and others find places for compassionate reflection and sacred space that is okay holding grief and loss this Advent and Christmas.
