Blue Christmas?

“The Holidays” can be an excruciatingly difficult time if you’re sad, grieving a loss, or just facing problems this year—especially when the expectations of the world around us seem to be all about Decking the Halls.

This year, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is offering a “Blue Christmas” service featuring a little comfort and joy, as it were, but without all of the tinsel and trappings. It will be a blend of Scripture and Christmas music, with a focus on candlelight, prayers and peace—and acknowledging the poignant feelings that the season can inspire.  St. Peter’s invites anyone who has experienced a loss—a loved one, job, health—to join us for a time of honest reflection and hope.

The Blue Christmas service will be on Monday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m., St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is located at 334 14th St. in Del Mar Village, one block east of the 101. To learn more about St. Peter’s, see www.stpetersdelmar.net or call 858-755-1616 x 101
