Usually on Epiphany Sunday, we have everyone pull out a star-shaped piece of paper from a basket that has a word on it. This would be your “Star Word”: a word that you take with you through the year ahead
We wanted to keep that tradition alive for 2021, even if we are not meeting in-person. So we brought the Star Words to you, virtually!
All you need to do is click the following link: http://bit.ly/StarWords2020
You will click to spin the “Wheel of Words” to receive your very own Star Word.
Write it down somewhere (you can even make your own star for it!) and reflect on your word & how you can live out your word in 2021.
Pastor Donna of FUMC of Stillwater, MN, said these words about getting a Star Word:
You may find it is a word that fits you perfectly. If so, celebrate that, and see how you can be more intentional about sharing your gift with the world.
You may find it is a word that offers you the encouragement or challenge you need. If so, receive that gift and let it shape you in the days, weeks, and months ahead.
You may find yourself resisting the word or even wanting to reject the word. If that is the case, I encourage you to sit with it for a while, explore the source of your resistance, and be open to what this word may have to teach you.
Live with your word, reflect upon it, journal about it, talk about it with others, share your thoughts with me. Discover how this Star Word may shine its light on you and on your path throughout this coming year.
Share with us your word! Let us know on our social media pages (@AUMCOLATHE on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) or by sending the office a quick email about your Star Word & how it will shape your 2021.
