Blue Christmas Vespers
December 14, 2022 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Are you feeling out of synch with the forced happiness of the holidays? Come and rest in the beauty of our sanctuary for an evening contemplative service. Sit by others who are seeking solace for their sadness, worry and stress. We offer space tonight for anyone who is feeling blue. Please join us for a gentle service of music and candlelight, readings and silence. If you are watching online, find a candle and matches for the candle-lighting ritual.
Rev. Dena McPhetres, Associate Minister
Alissa Rhode, Lead Music Director
