Longest Night: A Seasonal Service of Reflection & Renewal

  • Date: December 21, 2019
  • Time: 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
  • Location: Stuart Community Room

The holidays can be a time for many when we find ourselves in need of reassurance and comfort. Perhaps we are grieving over the loss of a friend or loved one, struggling with illness or have experienced the loss of a job. These feelings are in conflict with the celebratory fervor surrounding us this time of year; and we may find ourselves looking for ways to help us gently open to better receive the goodness and blessings of the season.    

Those seeking comfort and hope, wholeness and renewal, please join us for a time of quiet reflection, readings from books of meditations, poetry and music.

All are welcome to this non-denominational service. Free of charge.

Hosted by The Community Church of Lake Forest/Lake Bluff and Lydia Backer, MSW, LSW of Life & Death: Life-affirming conversations around end-of-life issues. Music curated and performed by Ken Hall, The Community Church’s Minister of Music.
