Join the Virginia Beach Community Development Corporation for a special ASCEND event: Blue Christmas on Wednesday, December 21st.
Depression and loneliness become even more challenging at this time of the year. Dealing with the death of a loved one (whether this year or twenty years ago), 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, and a number of other human situations make parties and joviality painful for many people in our communities.
Blue Christmas is a reflective program focused on creating a safe inclusive space for neighbors of diverse faiths living through dark times. This program will be largely meditative; moving us toward acceptance of where we really are, and hope for healing.
It will take place on the longest day of the year, the Winter Solstice; Wed., Dec .21, 2016 from 6:50- 8:00 PM. Due to the nature of the event, we ask that all participants be on time.
Doors will open at 6:30 PM. No childcare will be provided. Youth attendees 12+ are welcome.
