Sometimes the future is brighter than we could ever imagine.

Like all of Star’s friends, it is a source of delight and beauty, but most importantly although Star doesn’t fully realise it; a guide. Unlike Star’s friends it’s small, doesn’t twinkle and is never gazed upon by anyone. How is Star supposed to accomplish its dream, while being so dismal? Helped and comforted by one of the angels, Star learns self-belief, patience and trust. Star is brave, hopeful and resilient and comes out every night over the little town even after years of never being noticed.

One special night Star sees a young woman, sitting, huddled on a donkey, shivering against the bitter cold. Star is so moved with compassion and love for this young woman that its own problems are forgotten. Star’s dream comes true that week and achieving it is easy, at first. Star guides the woman to safety and many, many people to her special family.

Star’s dream comes at a great cost, but Star earns both the gratitude of the special family and a place in hearts of all in the heavens, in the little town and beyond.

Star is the story of The Nativity told from the rather unusual perspective of The Christmas Star. Like all Nativity based stories it’s a story of Love, Wonder and Sacrifice. There are also themes of friendship, self-doubt and finding one’s place in the world/ finding and sharing one’s gifts and talents.
