On Epiphany Sunday we will choose Star words or Star gifts. At Como Lake we did this a while back and we will pick it up again this year. This is where we write words on paper.  Each person chooses a paper at random and the word they get is a word for them to pray about and ponder and think about all year. The word is an invitation to pay attention to how God is living in your life through that word all year long. Because we can’t pass you paper stars in person - here is our VIRTUAL VERSION.

Simply choose a number between 1 and 184 or
use this RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR to pick one. 

Once you have done that, match your number to a word in the corresponding list below. 

When you discover what your word is...try to stick with the one you get, even if you don’t at first like it…because that’s especially when you might be amazed at what God is doing.

You are invited to cut out your own paper star...write your word on it and hang it somewhere you will see it every day...so that you can remember what God is doing in your life through and with your star gift...your star word.
