Service of Hope & Healing
Wednesday, December 16, at 7pm
The days around the longest night, the winter solstice, can be a time of introspection with the long nights and extended time for reflection. For many it is a time filled with nostalgia and melancholy as the holidays bring memories of times gone by and of loved ones. Even the simple passage of time can bring with it overwhelming joy tinged by sadness. At the close of 2020, in particular, we find we have need of a space that focuses on more than the glitter and baubles and Christmas lights. In Isaiah 57, the prophet speaks God’s promise: “I will lead them and repay them with comfort… Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them.”

Join us online for this year’s Service of Hope and Healing. The service provides a space of quiet reflection with prayer and gentle music. A time when participants can simply be present and find balance to the mad dash of the Christmas rush or the encroaching fears of the pandemic as we focus on God’s enduring promises. Visit www.akronfcc.org/live or Facebook to join worship.
