The Christmas Star

Imagine for a moment if we woke up one morning to

Discover a new star in the sky. Not any old star

Mind you, but a very special star


The Star would be headline news everywhere. Where

Had it come from and what was it doing? Questions

Without answers I fear. A new star suddenly appears

In the sky exactly two weeks before Christmas. What

On earth can it mean and who sent it?


Scientists would be in a quandary as stories of a New

Nativity grew both in stature and number. Multitudes

Gathered outside keen to bask in the dazzling light of

This wondrous new heavenly portent


And thus a miracle slowly began to take shape. People

Turned away from their idols and looked to the star for

Fulfilment and each day the star grew in intensity until

Everyone on earth felt the healing power of its light. At

Last here was a truth the whole world could see and

Believe in. The star could not be denied nor could its

Presence or its effects be overshadowed by false

Rhetoric from false pulpits and soon places of worship

Everywhere opened their roofs to the sky and the

Glorious light of the star


The star had no earthly agenda, it was totally neutral

Favouring no one regardless of faith but loving everyone

Who walked within its light. The star was love plain and

Simple and the rewards were many guns dropped faster

Than bombs and bombs like other instruments of death

Where laid to rest as soldiers knelt with their enemies to

Gaze at the star. A second coming had truly come to pass

Not as a man, nor as a woman, but as the long awaited

Christmas Star
