Unity Comox Valley hosts serenity service in Comox Thursday

Do you have mixed feelings about the holidays?

Unity offers a special evening service for you.

Unity Comox Valley is holding its annual December serenity service on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. in the Comox Lions Den. Through a peaceful hour of tranquillity, you can find a place to remember loved ones no longer in your life, or acknowledge other losses or changes that may have you feeling a little blue.

“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 losses, disappointments and challenges.

“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.”
