The Dark Night service will give space to lament and dwell in the advent season of waiting and recognizing that, on the darkest night of the year, there is much to grieve in our own lives as well as in our world. Many of us find the Christmas period difficult, no matter how many parties with silly sweaters there might be or Christmas songs on the radio there are.
And yet as we gather together on the longest night and it passes, we remember together that the following night is shorter and the day is longer. There is hope. The closeness of Christmas reminds us that just as Christ came to redeem, he will come again to restore all things. Even our darkest darknesses. This service will give space and stillness to grieve, lament, and hope.
7:30 PM at the First Church of the Nazarene.
