Isaiah 9:2 – The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness – on them light has shined.
During the deep darkness of December, I am especially grateful for the stars on cold, winter nights. Stars remind me that no matter how difficult life may seem, I can find light in the darkness. That is my belief and my prayer.
Christmas Eve, hundreds of stars will shine above the Plymouth Sanctuary chancel, symbolizing the birth of Jesus, God’s gift of light to our world. You are invited to help create these beautiful “Stars of Light” which you can imbed with your personal, written prayer for the world, the community and loved ones.
Prayer star-making begins this Sunday, November 5, during all-church brunch in Hildebrand Hall, and we’ll continue to create them until Christmas Eve when they will be installed in the Sanctuary. Please join us; make one or dozen!
As we prepare for the birth of Jesus, may we remember and feel the warmth of God’s love and light even in the darkness.
If you are interested in helping make stars for our Christmas Eve installation, please contact Rosemary Hashimoto at RHashimoto@comcast.net or 206.290.0502.Subscribe
