Longest Night Service
Wednesday, December 19, 5:30
For many of us, Christmas is a poignant time of year. It is a time for remembering persons, places, and events that have been a part of our lives in the past, but that are now changed or gone. It is a time when the world around us seems to require joyfulness, but that joy might be a little hard to come by in our own hearts. It is a time when the increasingly longer nights seem symbolic of the creeping emotional shadows that we rightfully and honestly feel, even in the midst of celebration. For this reason, Forest Lake Presbyterian will join churches around the world in offering a Longest Night worship service of healing and wholeness. This is a time for quiet and remembering, when we will have the opportunity to bring our hurting places to God and prepare our hearts and minds for the light of Christ that promises to penetrate the darkness. The Longest Night service will take place on Wednesday, December 19th, starting at 5:30 pm in the sanctuary. It will be about an hour long, and will include scripture readings, music, prayers, silence, anointing with oil, and communion.
