Sunday Service – December 18: “Bah! Humbug!”

Donne Hayden joins us this Sunday as we discuss how not everyone is happy during the Christmas season.  You’re not alone if you find yourself identifying more with Scrooge than Tiny Tim. The contrast between Christmas expectations and Christmas reality can be painful for some, especially when everyone around them seems to be in jolly spirits. For those who are happy during the holidays, it is important to be aware of those you know and love who may struggle with depression at Christmas. Some churches have begun to hold “Blue Christmas” services to honor the experiences of people for whom Christmas is a hard, sad time. Besides finding such a service, what can we do to lessen the Christmas blues for ourselves or others? Monthly Potluck after Sunday Service.
