Following the Star returns for 2019 with new album


Following the Star, d365’s special season for Advent and Christmas, returned on December 1st. For the past 18 years, Passport, Inc. has provided thoughtful online devotions online for youth and young adults. The Advent series features scripture, prayer, and meditative thoughts accompanied by gentle Advent hymns and carols. The devotional writers represent d365’s denominational partners and include Jennie Barber, Duana Cisney, Daniel Potter, Tracy Hartman, Chad Senuta, and Jeremy Wilhelmi.

This season’s devotions are accompanied by songs from a new album called “O
Bright and Morning Star.” These arrangements recorded and produced by Passport Board Member and Founder Nathan Hanson. The album will be available for purchase or streaming on iTunes and Spotify in the coming weeks. To learn more about Nathan’s music, visit and sign up to join his newsletter.

Following the Star is part of the year-round devotional website and app, d365, produced by Passport, Inc. d365 is sponsored ecumenically by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the Episcopal Church, and the Presbyterian Church (USA). Devotionals are available 365 days of the year on and through our free Apple and Android apps.
