A true Christmas STAR

Born in a stable of humble parents 
a refugee in early childhood, 
Jesus grew up in the despised town of Nazareth. 
In middle life he abandoned his craft 
to begin the messianic mission of good news 
about the unbreaking of God's kingly reign, 
journeying throughout Palestine, 
often with no place to sleep. 

After a brief ministry, 
he was put to death 
by the power elite of the day, 
crucified among criminals.
