Blue Christmas_service

 

On December 15th, Outer Banks Presbyterian Church will host a Blue Christmas Worship Service at 3:00 pm.  Blue Christmas, also called the Longest sleep in the Western Christian tradition, is a day in the Advent season marking the longest night of the year. Near this day, some churches hold a church service which recognizes that the holidays are sometimes "blue" or filled with difficult feelings around painful life events such as death, disease, poverty, or abuse. This worship service is traditionally held around the longest night of the year, which falls on or about December 21, the Winter Solstice. There is an interesting convergence for this day as it is also the traditional feast day for Saint Thomas the Apostle. This linkage invites making some connections between Thomas's struggle to believe the tale of Jesus' resurrection, the long nights just before Christmas, and the struggle with darkness and grief faced by those living with loss.  This worship service will include opportunities for expression of grief and pain as well as an opportunity to focus on the promise of hope we have in Jesus Christ. All OBPC church members, friends, and local citizens are invited to attend this meaningful service.
