Candlelight serenity service Thursday

Unity Comox Valley is holding its annual December serenity service on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Comox Lions Den. Everyone is invited to enjoy an early holiday gift, the gift of a peaceful hour of prayer, meditation, and tranquility.

“In the midst of the shopping, decorating and food preparation, there can be mixed feelings about this time of year,” said Unity minister, Vicki Vanderhorst. “What is seen as a joyous season can also be a time when we reflect on our personal losses. We remember loved ones who are no longer with us. We reflect on challenges at work, at home and in our relationships.”

Unity offers this service each year in December to give people a quiet space to remember, honour and acknowledge these feelings.

“When we take some quiet time in advance of the holidays for these emotions we are able to more fully enjoy the beauty and the message of the Christmas season,” said Vanderhorst.
