Is there any room?


As we look towards Christmas and how a lack of room at the inn caused Mary and Joseph to welcome their baby on the outskirts of town in a stable...I invite you to ponder the words of a monk named Thomas Merton.

Room in the Inn

Into this world, this demented inn in which there is absolutely no room for him at all, Christ comes uninvited. But because he cannot be at home in it, because he is out of place in it, and yet he must be in it, His place is with the others for whom there is no room. His place is with those who do not belong, who are rejected by power, because they are regarded as weak, those who are discredited, who are denied status of persons, who are tortured, bombed and exterminated. With those for whom there is no room, Christ is present in this world.

- Thomas Merton

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Jason
