December is usually a special time we share with our loved ones. For some people, this is the hardest part of grieving, when they miss their loved ones even more than usual. So, Dapto Uniting Church is having "Blue Christmas" to find new joys through our tears before God, as life goes on.
“Many of us are acquainted with the paradox of the Advent and Christmas seasons – a time when we feel we are supposed to celebrate hope, love, joy and peace, and yet a time that can also be full of depression, sadness and grief. Blue Christmas services offer special recognition of the struggles that many people face during this season. Its sombre tone also testifies to the struggles of Mary, Joseph and Jesus that are often overlooked. By offering this service of worship to your congregation and community, you can acknowledge the struggles that we all face while providing a safe place of rest, comfort and healing.” chreader.org
