Move from Holiday Sadness to Holiday Joy
Honor Your Loved One with the Remembrance Service at Unity Church of San Antonio
The holidays are coming and many people experience them happily, with great anticipation for sharing family traditions, celebrating with holiday parties, and wishing for a prosperous New Year. For some, the coming holidays can trigger other feelings, and often this can be due to past loss or unresolved grief.
This phenomenon is well known and well documented. Enter “holiday depression” in any search engine online and you will find a startling number of articles, many of which have suggestions for coping with the holiday blues. One frequent suggestion is to reach out to a faith community.
At Unity Church of San Antonio, we offer an annual Remembrance Service to honor any of life’s transitions, changes, and losses. At the service, we are invited to recognize the spirit of the people who have touched our lives. It is a poignant service to open our hearts and clear some space to prepare for the holiday season. By participating, many people are able to move through feelings of sadness and into the holidays with a joyful heart.
Even if you have never attended services at Unity Church of San Antonio before, you are welcome to join us. You will find our CommUNITY warmly welcomes persons of every ethnicity, language, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, economic status, occupation, and faith background.
