Follow the Star
December & January
“It was the star that first caught their attention. It was the star that shone out announcing to the world; Jesus is Here. It was the star that prompted them to make that journey……………..”
#FollowTheStar is the Church of England’s Advent and Christmas campaign which encourages everyone to follow in the footsteps of the Wise Men on their journey to meet Jesus. There are resources and daily reflections, starting on Christmas Eve and ending on the Epiphany (6 January).
Just as we give, we must also be open to accepting the gifts of others. In Jesus, God gives us the most precious gift of all and invites us to know and follow his only Son. Whatever your Christmas looks like, everyone is invited to the birth of Jesus. From the lowliest shepherds to the wealthy Magi, all are welcome to gather together and delight in God’s grace!
You too are welcome to follow the star this Christmas and find yourself in that humble stable, in a place where you are known and loved in the presence of God. We hope that you have a blessed Christmas and pray that your journey following the star leads you ever closer to the joy and peace of knowing Jesus Christ.
