The Longest Night Service
December 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
While much of the holiday season features joy and merriment, we recognize that these December days can also be tender with grief, loss, and yearning. Mindful of just these complexities this time of year, the pastoral staff and Care Team members of Shadyside Presbyterian Church are offering a special service of worship, The Longest Night. On Wednesday, December 20, at 7:00 p.m., we will gather in the Chapel to pray, sing, lament, remember, and commune together. This quiet, contemplative service welcomes all who seek just such a holy space and particularly any who carry a heaviness of their own or on behalf of the world. Together, we will echo Advent’s cry, “Come, Lord Jesus,” as we turn our attention to the Christ who was born into a world of longing. Nursery care will be provided, and the service will conclude with a time for fellowship for any who welcome company amidst the dark night.
