Christmas can often be a difficult time for many of us. Usually, the world is in a grand celebratory mode, and doesn't make much space for people who are grieving, or are feeling sadness, anxiety, frustration, or loss.

Many communities of faith gather for a time of worship "when Christmas doesn't feel like Christmas." This year, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of these feelings are stronger, and many more people are struggling with Christmas. As we mark one year of changed life because of COVID-19, the United Church offers  a denomination-wide service of Lament for Advent (if you've got one, you might want to bring a candle - battery or match operated - for this time of prayer, reflection, and song).
