Scripture Reading: Luke 2.1-7
No room at the inn?
In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
‘…there was no room for them to stay in the inn’.
Those last words of our Bible reading tonight are terrible words. There is no room for a woman, who has travelled a long way, and who is about to give birth. No room for her faithful husband, who has come all from Nazareth with her, because the Emperor Augustus demanded it. No room for the child who is born, not even a place to lay him- just an animal feeding trough.
