Star Words for Epiphany

The use of star words, also called “star gifts,” is a prayer practice connected to Epiphany and the new year that has been growing in popularity in Protestant churches for nearly a decade now. The idea is that a list of intention words, or guiding words, are written or printed on paper stars. These paper stars are then arranged or in a large basket. On January 7th, you’ll be invited to draw a word from the basket, and to use that word as a guiding word throughout the year. We encourage you to trust the word you draw, but if you need to trade, that’s ok too.
