This is a day of learning for me, God,
A day of moving outside of
My comfort zone
As I follow a star
Into a future that may be
Very different from today

And I pray for all of us
That we are willing to try
A new thing
Something we have not done before
So that we can grow
While following a star

Give us the courage
To move into an uncertain future
And to leave behind
The things which hold us down
As we pick up something different
In this season of Epiphany
May we be open to your light
And to your guidance
And to whatever is going to come
As we continue to follow the star
Amen

She is a second-career minister in the Presbyterian Church in Canada, and serves two congregations in Québec. She adds, “Many of us take part in the Star Words which I first found here a couple of years ago, and since this is the season of Epiphany, I thought to write about following our stars.”
