The Longest Night

December 21 is the Winter Solstice; it marks the beginning of the season of Winter (in the northern hemisphere). It is also the day that has the longest period of darkness.

2020 has been quite the year and a lot of people have been affected by the pandemic and its affects on families, relationships, employment, and housing. It might be hard to be joyful or happy during this time… and that’s ok.

For some, this Christmas will not be as “merry and bright” as it was in year’s past. But the light of Advent will guide our way. It will begin to push back the darkness and allow the light of God’s love and mercy to come in.

Below is a picture of my family’s advent candles and a simple prayer.

May you feel God’s presence this longest night.

In Christ,

Rev. Evan

One thought on “The Longest Night

  1. This is always a sad day for me because my aunt snd uncle died in an automobile accident in Mt Pleadant, Texas, in 2006. They were the glue that held our family together, as they hosted our family gatherings for birthdays and holidays.
