‘Tis the Season, Pt 4


The Galilean couple inquires about a room at an Inn.  Once again they are told that there is no room, and “No, we don’t know where you can find a room.”  Bethlehem is filled with descendants of David who have come here to register for the Roman census.

Again the innkeeper speaks, “Your wife looks very pregnant and very tired.  Perhaps we can find a little space . . .”

I am retired after a career in electronics and in publishing. Today, my wife of 50+ years, Sylvia, and I live in a house on a hill beside a dirt road in rural west Michigan. We enjoy living in this country environment where livestock and wild life out number the human population.

  1. Biblical scholars refer to players such as the innkeeper as “minor characters.” Perhaps we are all minor characters, but we are called to give as he did: what we have.
    Or, on second thought, perhaps he could have given them his master suite and slept in the stable himself. hmmm

    • I suspect the stable was more tranquil than the big house. Each character is important, no matter how much (or little) is recorded about them.

  2. This part of the story always makes me a little sad. I can’t imagine not having a place to go to have a baby.
