Holiday Video Message

‘Looking For The Star’

The clouds were moving so fast tonight
as we searched for the Bethlehem Star.
I wasn’t sure what we were seeing,
not knowing the sky so well,
but dazzling lights and planets were there,
reminding us of our place in the stars,
our Earth the Creation carrying us
in the darkest Night, on the near Eve
of the great Birthday, of the greatest Love
we could ever know, should we stop
in the Silent Night to remember.

By Judith Kennedy, MS, MA, NCC, LPC
