Starlight Service of Remembrance & Holy Communion, 6:15-7:00 p.m., Chapel
As we prepare for a baby in a manger, this service reminds us that not only was Jesus born for us, Jesus died for us. In this season of joy, this service acknowledges that although Christ came that we might have life and have it abundantly, our life is still punctuated with times of suffering and loss, but all of which love overcomes. But perhaps most importantly, this service reminds us that wherever we are on life’s journey, we are not alone.
As Christmas approaches, the Starlight Service of Remembrance is a time to remember the events of years past. It is especially a time of reflection for anyone who has experienced life-changing events whether through death, loss of a relationship, loss of job, loss of health, or other significant events.
Music, readings, lighting of candles, prayers, and communion will all be part of this special Advent worship service. Paul Honaker will accompany this service on organ with flautist Chris Ertell, playing meditative songs of Christmas.
