Star Search

Star Search

Scripture: Matthew 2:1-12 (NRSV)

Stargazing is one of the oldest human rituals. There are billions, likely trillions of solar systems. The next closest star to us after the sun is Alpha Centauri, which is 26 million miles away. When that star dies, it will take 4.5 years for us to see that it is gone. We look to stars for direction and orientation. Navigators say that we can “fix our position” with no instruments, just our eyes and the stars. We also look into the night sky in search of guidance, signs, insight, and meaning. Looking up, we wonder: When did all this come into being? When will it come to an end? Is anyone else out there? The Wise Men also did some wondering during their wandering in search of not only a star, but a son born who was a king. So this Sunday, along with the Magi, let us orient and navigate our lives with Jesus, the bright Morning Star, and lay our gifts before him. Let’s let Christ “fix our position.”
