The Rev. Dana O’Brien lights the advent wreath at the third annual Blue Christmas service at Cross of Glory Lutheran Church in Homer Glen.
Words of what brought people to the Blue Christmas service were written on strips of cloth and left in a manger at Cross of Glory. The church held a service for those experiencing grief, loneliness or loss during the Christmas season.

For some, a tragedy can change their life forever. Divorce, loss of a job, an untimely death of a spouse or a child even being disowned by adult children can rock one’s world completely. For the third year in a row on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 20, the Rev. Dana O’Brien and Cross of Glory Lutheran Church in Homer Glen has hosted Blue Christmas for those struggling during the holidays with the aforementioned issues.
