The star shined on the manger to lead people to the child. His light shined in the world to lead people to God. He left His light in His people to lead people to good news of great joy.
The joyful news of Jesus changes lives. The glorious wonder of a baby coming into the world to redeem and reconcile a broken creation to their Creator cannot be destroyed.
We cannot negate people's feelings just because they don't mesh with ours. We have to step into the hurt and/or concerns and strive to understand each other.
The only way to truly know our value, we need to rest in the identity given to us by our Creator.
