“…for those who mourn” Advent service

The holiday season is a time when recent losses are often felt most sharply.  Pretending one is not sad when everyone around you is in the holiday spirit does not usually help. But it can help when people join together in mutual care and seek spiritual healing before God.  That is why we are again offering a service this coming Sunday for those whose Christmas is clouded by missing a loved one.  Sometimes called a “BlueChristmas,” we are this year calling it, “…for those who mourn.” I hope you can join us this Sunday, December 16, at 7:00 pm, at the Church of Christ,Congregational (235 State Street, Granby, MA. While this service picks up on Advent themes of longing and hope, it is designed to be accessible to everyone, regardless of religious orientation.
