Why Tonight's 'Christmas Star' Is Such Good News

Tonight, Jupiter and Saturn will cross paths in the sky and will appear to us as one body. They will seem closer than they have since the 12000s and will shine brighter. While this is not the same star that led the magi to Christ, the timing of tonight’s celestial event points to that birth in a way that is especially significant. My wife and I were discussing this fact yesterday and she noted: “How wonderful that God would give us such a sign of his presence in this year of all years.”
