Star Words

Star words or star gifts are a practice connected to the celebration of Epiphany, when a star in the sky guided the magi to baby Jesus. For nearly a decade, the practice of sharing words for the new year has been gaining in popularity in Protestant churches. A list of words are shared on paper or online and participants are invited to trust the word they receive as offering guidance for their life in the coming year.

Place your star word where you will see it regularly throughout the year and consider God’s movement in your life through, around, and in connection to your star word.
