Liturgy for the Longest Night: My Soul Waits for the Lord



Liturgy for the Longest Night: My Soul Waits for the Lord
on Friday, December 21 from 7:00-8:00 pm.
at St. Paul's Memorial Church, Charlottesville, VA
1700 University Ave, Charlottesville, VA 22903
This service is especially for those who may find Christmas a difficult time of year.  Many people suffer in silence at this time of year, whether because of the remembrance of the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a job loss, or a profound sense of loneliness. 
The service will be held on the winter solstice, the “longest night” of the year. The tone will be contemplative and quietly hopeful.  All are welcome to be part of this late Advent service of Evening Prayer with music and candle lighting.  Come for yourself and for others who will benefit from your prayers and presence.  If you would like to come and need a ride, please the church office, 295-2156.
My soul waits for the Lord, more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.  (Psalm 130:5)
