Blue Christmas Service
The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, Dunedin, is offering a special service, understanding that Christmas can be difficult emotionally for many people. This service of lessons, songs and meditations is a thoughtful celebration of the birth of Christ. Although offered especially for those who are grieving, or for whom the holidays are difficult, all are welcome to an evening of solemn joy.
The rector of the church, Becky Robbins-Penninman writes, "During our time together, we will hear several beloved passages from scripture that tell the story God's plan for the healing and salvation of all Creation. After each lesson, the pastor will have a brief reflection, with time given for individual meditation and candle-lighting, then we'll pray and sing a well-known carol. The celebration of Holy Communion follows, in which everyone is invited to participate, regardless of their denominational heritage - if any.
More About Church of The Good Shepherd
The Church of the Good Shepard celebrates a traditional Episcopal liturgy, and invites everyone to join for services. The first Episcopal service in Dunedin was conducted in Library Hall by Bishop Weed on December 28, 1886. The church's original chapel erected in 1888-89, and was located closer to the corner of Main Street and Edgewater Drive. The Church was later moved to its present site. It has been renovated and enlarged several times, but the original chapel still forms a part of the overall construction.
