We created our Those Who Dream star words to build on the contemporary tradition of passing out intention words on Epiphany—a tradition growing in popularity amongst many Protestant churches. Inspired by the Magi following the star to Jesus, selecting a star word to meditate on throughout the new year can deepen your self-reflection and prayer practices.

To best serve your needs, we’ve provided multiple formats for printing and distributing the star words to your congregation, along with an accompanying liturgy for Epiphany Sunday. We’ve also provided ideas for how you might use the star words as a daily, child-friendly devotional throughout the season of Advent if you prefer to use them in that way.

We’ve included 150 star words—a number of which are non-English words. Words & liturgy written by Sarah Are.

IDEAS FOR HOW TO USE THE STAR WORDS

  • IDEA 1: Pass Them Out on Epiphany Sunday
    Use our accompanying liturgy to integrate them into your Epiphany Sunday worship. Distribute the star words to your congregation, inviting them to contemplate and prayerfully consider their word throughout the coming year.

  • IDEA 2: Distribute the Star Words to Use As a Daily Devotional Throughout Advent
    You might consider this option if you have lots of young families and children in your congregation. Print our beautifully-designed star words and distribute them to families and/or individuals in your congregation. You could then invite your congregation to pull a star word each day, beginning on December 1st and continuing through Christmas day, and use that word for daily meditation and prayer (we include prompts for this in the download). After you draw your daily star word, you might display it in your home by adding it to ribbon, a tassel, or tinsel and stringing it on your Christmas tree, into a wreath, or along your mantle.

  • IDEA 3: Combine Ideas 1 & 2!
    You could use the star words as outlined in Idea #2. Then, for worship on Epiphany Sunday, invite each member in your congregation to bring one of the star words that was very meaningful to them throughout the Advent season to give away to someone else in the church.
