On Wednesday, December 21, the longest night of the year, the Advocate will host a service of prayer, readings, candles, song and sacrament, acknowledging that for many, the season of Christmas is dark, difficult and sorrowful. We will remember those near and those far away.
All are welcome to join us in the The Chapel at 7 PM.
God of mercy, hear our prayer in this Advent season for ourselves and for our loved ones who live with painful feelings and memories. We ask for strength for today, courage for tomorrow and peace for the past. We ask these things in the name of Jesus the Christ, who shares our life in joy and sorrow, death and new birth, despair and promise. Amen.
