As we enter our Tricentennial celebration, “star gifts” were available at church last Sunday and also mailed out last week to each church family. A star gift is simply a star-shaped piece of brightly colored paper with a word printed on it. You are asked to reflect on that word for the coming year. You are invited to ponder what significance this word might have in your live, and how God might be speaking to you through this simple message. Often the words seem very timely, as if they were indeed designated for the recipient. It is this sense of providence and wondering how God might be working through this simple process that reminds us of God’s presence throughout the year. If you have not received your star, please contact the church office and let us know.
