The Longest Night

Once again, our small group (Bible study group) helped to lead a special service at church, called *The Longest Night* ~ referring to the Winter Solstice when we have the least amount of daylight hours. The main theme is that Christmas/this time of year may not be the *merriest* for everyone....people are hurting and struggling. Even if you thought you were sailing through things hunky dory, along comes a horrific tragedy that touches all our lives. We offered songs, words of encouragement, and scripture that offers hope. We shared communion, prayer, and a lovely candle lighting time ~ which is what this picture is about...the altar covered with burdens we bear and are giving to the Light of Christ. My prayer is that we all can give our burdens to the Newborn King and walk in His Light! Merry Christmas ><>
