Spencer says many people need a place where their grief and hurt and loneliness and struggles are acknowledged and where a word of hope is spoken. "That's why we started offering this special 'Longest Night Service' to the community," he says. "It can be a time for healing."
The service will be held on Sunday, Dec. 20, 7:30 p.m. at Fall City United Methodist Church, 337th Place SE at SE 43rd Place.
Shawn Carty, pastor of Fall City United Methodist Church, joined Spencer at Tolt Congregational United Church of Christ, Carnation, last year for the service. This year Carty will be joined by Spencer, the Rev. Roy Tripp of St. Clare Episcopal Church (Snoqualmie), the Rev. Mary Brown of Snoqualmie United Methodist Church, and the Rev. Nansi Hawkins of Sammamish Congregational United Church of Christ.
