Though Christmas is a joyous time of year, it also brings an undercurrent of sadness for those of us dealing with grief, loss, loneliness, and other difficult places. Attending to these places of our life is critical, but can be challenging when every message around us says to party and celebrate. Every year, around Christmas, we gather to sit together in authenticity and in seeking hope and peace. This year, we’ll gather at The Upper Room at 7pm on Tuesday, December 22nd, the longest night of the year, when darkness feels most prevalent. This special service of prayer will be an opportunity for us to lay our brokenness before God, seeking the healing and wholeness that is promised to us in Christ. Whether you feel a need to come laying your brokenness before God, or feel a calling to pray with and for others, we hope you’ll join us for this holy gathering.
