Agatha Christie's

Star Over Bethlehem
A Christmas Thriller

On two Wednesdays prior to the Christmas holiday we will read the famous mystery-writer's rendition of the Christmas Eve Story. Lucifer/Satan visits Mary to persuade her to kill the illegitimate child. He shows her the future, including the crucifixion, and tells her that her son will be tried and executed as a thief. Christie, an Anglican, offers a theological and spiritual quest in her own brilliant style.

Leader: Rev. Garnette Arledge

Rev. Arledge is a retired chaplain of the hospice program and co-President of the Kingston AAUW. A Woodstock resident, she is author of On Angel's Eve, a book title inspired by this Christie short story. The book is based on Arledge's Hospice work and the Hospice Volunteer training manual she wrote for spiritual and multi-cultural patient-centered compassionate care.
