Lamentation

out of the depths on the longest night

“Out of the depths to Thee I raise the voice of lamentation / Lord, turn a gracious ear to me and hear my supplication.”

Not all Christmases are white…  some are blue…

Blue christmas

When it seems like the whole world is awash in lights, celebration, friends, and family, many among us feel a sense of loss, grief, and disconnect.  Join us as we reflect on the meaning of living through dark times, holding out for healing and hope.

At 7pm on Friday, December 21st at the PERC, we will have a meditative service on the longest night, the night of the winter solstice.  We will remind each other of Jesus’ promise, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”

“What though I wait the live-long night, and till the dawn appeareth / My heart still trusteth in God’s might; it doubteth not nor feareth.”
