As we begin a new year, I would like to offer you a Star Word to have as your focus for 2021. But what are Star Words?
On Epiphany (January 6), we celebrate the arrival of the Magi to bear witness to the birth of baby Jesus. Just as the Magi followed the star to Jesus, we too seek Jesus trusting the signs (or stars) that guide us closer to Christ. A Star Word is one word that you carry with you throughout this next year to guide you on your journey.
We would invite you to place whatever word is chosen for you in a place where you will often see it. On your mirror. In your car. By the kitchen sink. Place it on your pillow each morning. Some place you will see it each day and be reminded of Christ’s presence that is guiding you in your life.
Although the word chosen for you might not feel like a fit at first, we hope that you will give the word a chance to work in your life this coming year. Allow God to speak to you through this word.
So, if you would like a Star Word for 2021, please let me know and I will get one to you. You can call, email, text or go on Facebook (Peace Lutheran Church – Tomah (ELCA) and find the Star Word post. I hope that your word will speak to you throughout this year and that you will share your stories of where God shows up in 2021.
God’s love and peace,
