The Star at Bethlehem
Each year our Residents put on a Christmas play. And every year it is written in a different view of Christmas. Sometimes it speaks of the Shepherds, or the Angels, or the trip to Bethlehem by Mary and Joseph. This year was very unique since it was about the Star of Bethlehem.
The play began when the Angels were looking for a Star that shine over the Crib at Bethlehem. The Angels went to the biggest Star to ask her to shine over Bethlehem, but when the Star found out it was at a poor crib it would shine on, the Star’s pride got away from it and did not want to shine over this poor little crib in a stable.
The Angels went looking for another Star, and finally decided to go to the smallest Star, who was a bit afraid about the great task it was asked, so she called the other little Stars to come and help her, to shine on the Crib at Bethlehem at Christmas night.
It is a big job, to shine on the Crib, to shine on Jesus. Yet that is what we are all asked to do, so that others may find Him, and others will seek Him. The Star at Bethlehem shone so brightly that it brought the Wise men out of their way. The Shepherds too came out of their field, just to see this little baby. The Angels too sang their Gloria to the Christ Child in adoration.
