“Every life has meaning.”
Emmy Award Winning Actress Patricia Heaton shared her thoughts in line with her upcoming film, “The Star,” that’s set to release on November 17.
She said that “Americans are in difficult political times” and she believes that the holidays are a good time to explore what life means.
In her statement, Heaton says:
“Not to get depressing [but] life is short and I think it’s important to realize that you have to think beyond just today, just this minute, a vision about the world and your future and what you’re contributing to the world. Our lives here are really brief and the story of the nativity is about all of that and this gift we were given through the birth of Christ and his work on the cross that imbues every aspect of our life with meaning.”
She stresses that everyone’s life has a meaning. “Every person was created with specific gifts, big and small.”
“We can all affect the course of history through our actions and wherever God has put us,” she said. “And that’s very clear in the nativity story — the creator of the universe entered the world through a poor family, in the poorest of circumstances and He changed the world and saved the world.”
The story will follow the journey of Jesus’ birth through the perspective of Bo, a donkey who will discover his purpose as the story unfolds. Bo and his new friends follow the star and become heroes in the story of the Nativity.
Heaton plays Edith the cow in the movie. She says “The Star” is not like other Christmas movies because it focuses on the true meaning of Christmas. The film is said to bring warmth and humor while telling the greatest story ever through the animal’s perspectives.
