Advent counting down to Christmas – Day 16

16th December.  A Star

Our Bible reading for and picture for today has moved the action of the story away from Bethlehem to the East.  This is the part of the story of Christmas that includes a star and three curious Magi.  ““We saw his star when it rose” the Magi said. (Matthew 2:2a NIV) That star may be symbolic of the light of the world (Jesus, Son of God, Saviour of all) coming.
