Opawa blue christmas service 08

bluechristmas1300.jpg The Press on Tuesday called Advent 2008 the season of grief, noting the death of taxi driver Abdulrahman Ikhtiari, the recent Air New Zealand crash, needless road accidents and the Elim School tragedy in April. Amid the joy of Christmas can be pain and sadness, as we remember absent friends, difficult circumstances or the death of a loved one. The Blue Christmas service will make a “blue tent” in memory of all that makes us blue. It will also use prayer, symbol, silence and a personal story of a blue Christmas, to affirm that Emmanuel God-with-us cares and loves us in our blue times.

West Wing Church foyer, Opawa Baptist, 7:30-8:30 pm, December 17th.
