The Longest Night Service evening of Winter Soulstice


Fri, Dec 14th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Faith & Worship

Christmas can be a painful time for some. It may be the first Christmas without a loved family member who has recently died; it may be a time that has always been difficult. The constant refrain on the radio and television, in shopping malls and churches, about the happiness of the season, about getting together with family and friends, reminds many people of what they have lost or have never had. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation—all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of the celebrating and spending. We need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern; we need to know that we are not alone. Our spirits sink, as the days grow shorter. We feel the darkness growing deeper around us. We need encouragement to live the days ahead of us.

For these reasons, Lanesboro United Methodist Church is offering “The Longest Night” service on Friday, December 21, 2012, at 7:00pm. Come out and join with us in sharing and hearing prayers, scripture, and music that acknowledge that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who struggle-and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness. Everyone, regardless of church background (or lack of it) is welcome. The short service will be followed by a brief time for light refreshments and fellowship. If you know of someone that this service would help, please offer to pick them up and bring them to this special service. If you have questions please call the church office @ 507-467-2646 or Ann Weaver @ 507-467-2458.
