Full Text

Christmastime is not a season of joy for everyone. For many, it is a time to mourn losses of the past year, whether it is the loss of a parent, child, spouse or good friend. It could also be the loss of a relationship, family status or financial well being. We may want to quietly celebrate Jesus' birth and feel a spiritual closeness with God, but we cannot face the joy of the season as we normally do. Nothing seems important compared to the loss we have suffered. It is a St. John's tradition that those who want to share these feelings have an outlet to express their grief and longing. If you're looking for some quiet reflection with others who are in a similar situation, why not take an hour to come to our Blue Christmas service? St. John's United Church is holding this service in its Glen William's sanctuary on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. The intimate feeling of this small Glen church (533 Main Street, Glen Williams) will help enable you to express yourself with others who care. Everyone is welcome. You don't have to be a member of St. John's to come. See www.stjohnsuc.ca for details.
