Not everybody is happy during the Christmas season, so Monrovia's Hope Unlimited Church is holding a "Blue Christmas" service, "a gentle, contemplative service for those who are carrying pain or loss." Tuesday, December 18 at 7:30 p.m. The church is at 1900 Walker Ave, Monrovia. Walker is a block south of Duarte Road on the east side of Myrtle.
Oh! Another one. On Dec. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at Library Park, the Longest Night Service, a free "service designed to honor those loses and give us a place to grieve what might have been." Sponsored by the city, Monrovia Healing Connections, Monrovia Ministerial Association, and Douglass & Zook.
