“Comfort, comfort my people, says God”
The suffering people who looked for the long-awaited Messiah were given a hope-filled image of God in the writings of Isaiah. It expresses the belief that no matter what happens to us, God will be there to comfort and support us.
There are many times in our lives when we need comfort. There are tough times when we yearn for solace. These holidays can be a time for many when we are in need of that reassurance and comfort. Perhaps we are grieving over the loss of a loved one. Perhaps we are facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other dis-ease that puts a question mark over the future, or a number of other human situations which make parties and joviality painful especially during this season. Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. We wonder how we will get through the holidays.
The service begins in silence so all may participate in a time of reflection.
