Liturgy of the Longest Night, Live-streamed Holy Eucharist | Monday, December 21st @ 7 p.m.
This year, we will experience the Advent-Christmas season like no other as the covid-19 pandemic continues, disrupting our traditions and limiting our ability to travel and gather with our families and loved ones. For those for whom Christmas is already a painful, difficult and lonely time of year, this will be an especially hard Christmas. The Liturgy of the Longest Night, also known as “Blue Christmas,” is symbolically held on the Winter Solstice (December 21st or thereabouts), coinciding with the Feast Day for St. Thomas the Apostle (“Doubting Thomas”). This service creates a space to recognize and hold space for our own Thomist-like struggles of doubt during the darkness before Christmas faced by those living with loss and grief as we together wait in hope and longing for the Eternal Word Made Flesh to be born anew in our weary hearts and world. Please join us for this special live-streamed service (link to the video and live stream will be posted here on the day of service).

by Rev. Charlie Dupree Francis is one of my favorite saints. He is typically associated with animals and creation. Underlying these associations with nature is humility – a stepping aside from the “ways of the world.” St. Francis was doing his thing in the latter part of the twelfth century. It was a time when […]Read More

The old hymn tells us that “there’s a wideness in God’s mercy like the wideness of the sea.” That’s pretty big, my friends. There is room. In God’s incredible embrace, there is room for God to hear all the ways that we’ve missed the mark, and there is room for all of us to swim together in the deep, cool waters of God’s freedom and love.Read More
