An Evening in December Thank You!

  1. A new star blazed forth where there had never been a star before, and the air was filled with the bright wings of angels, the night sky came alive with the glittering armies of God, and a great hymn of victory rose up from them—Glory to God in the highest."                                                                                                                           -Frederick Buechner

The darkness was shattered like glass...

A new star blazed forth...

"The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it." 

                                                                                    John 1:5 

Darkness does not overcome.  Ever.  But that is a hard truth to remember when your light has gone out, which is where each child...each family that walks through our doors has recently found themselves.  They may be wandering in the darkness of depression... loneliness... anxiety... grief...hopelessness.  But whatever darkness they are in, we can promise you it feels engulfing.

But the darkness does not overcome.

Through individual and group counseling, Camp Hopetown, and parenting classes, we seek to offer hope to hurting children and families.  We, at Daystar, get to be a reminder of light...of the living light that shatters all of our darkness like glass.  He is the reason Daystar exists...and the reason we celebrate this Christmas season, this Evening in December with you. 

Thank you for being a reminder, too.  Thank you for helping to restore hope to children and families throughout our community.  We are honored to stand with you in the light.
