Longest Night Service December 21, 7 P.M.

The Longest Night Service
December 21, 2015 at 7 P.M.
Huntington Congregational Church
United Church of Christ
19 Church Street, Shelton, CT
December 21st is the longest night of the year. For many people, dark is symbolic of the harsh things of life. And, those harsh things become more evident in the light of the "shoulds" of Christmas time: we should be happy, we should be glad, we should be joyful. Well, sometimes our life is not conducive to the shoulds: we have lost a loved one, or a relationship, or a job, or whatever. We don't feel happy and glad. The Longest Night Service is a time to realize that for some, all is not goodness and light. We can come, acknowledge the darkness, but also look to the Nativity for our hope and our Light.  All are welcome.
A time for healing and hope.
