For many people, the holiday season is not the most wonderful time of year. In remembrance of them, Truth Meet Story, LLC, will host “Jesus, Jazz & Dessert Wine: A Blue Christmas Event,” a night of jazz, adult storytelling, and dessert wine. The featured storyteller will be artistic theologian Alexus Rhone.

Founder of Truth Meet Story, LLC, Alexus melds her three favorite loves - Jesus, jazz, and dessert wine - to bring together her three favorite types of people - the spiritual but not religious, jazz lovers, and wine consumers. Lynnette Barber, the JJDW minister of flava & musical vibes, will lead the Nina Simone, Dianne Reeves, India Arie, and Bob Marley sing-along.

Through song, creative expression, and audience participation, JJDW: Blue Christmas meets people where they are and provides an opportunity for them to openly declare their loss and their hope, as opposed to choosing one over the other. At JJDW: Blue Christmas, we do not preach, lecture, or sell anything to the audience. Our mission is to gather, to listen to stories, to let the mystery of music wash over us, and to go back out into the world better for the experience.
JJDW: Blue Christmas is free and open to the public.
