Dear Fellowship Family,


We are certainly not entering Christmas Break in the celebratory fashion I had hoped. My heart is heavy for everyone impacted by COVID-19, and I continue to keep each one of you in my prayers.  


I wanted to take just a moment to draw your attention to an incredibly special event that is happening soon. Jonathan Fickley, one of our high school faculty members, recently shared this with our faculty and staff, and I would like to share it with you in the hope that it will encourage you. On December 21st, Jupiter and Saturn, the solar system’s two largest planets, will align and form an incredibly bright point of light. Referred to as the “Star of Bethlehem” or the “Christmas Star,” this star will be so bright that it will be visible to everyone on Earth. It will be the first time in nearly 800 years this has occurred, but I know that God has perfect timing. When Jesus was born, the “Star of Bethlehem” led the wise men to Jesus. After a year of trials and darkness, I believe this star is once again leading us back to Jesus. John 1:5 says, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” God is lighting the way for all to return to Him. He is reminding us that He is always near, and we need only seek Him, rest in Him, and remember that He remains in control.


I hope, wherever you are on December 21st, you will take a few moments to witness this beautiful gift from God and thank Him for His ultimate gift – Jesus. I will continue praying for all of you. May you have a very Merry Christmas.


Thankful for His Light,


Dr. Kathryn M. Teston
