Through Their Eyes: An Innkeeper Under Pressure
This Advent season, we celebrate the story of Christmas from the perspective of some of the “smaller” characters. In this week’s message, we look at the story through the eyes of the notorious Inn-Keeper who has gone down in history as the one who turned away this “Holy Couple”! But perhaps in all his stress, busyness and lack of resources, he did the one small, positive thing he could—and it made a difference. Throughout the series, we’ll reflect on our own personal stories in light of these characters and the impact they made in a much bigger narrative than they could possibly see or feel. We’ll remind ourselves that ordinary people like us, doing small things with great love, can change the world. And together we’ll embrace the traditional Advent themes to renew our hope that a world full of peace, love and joy is not only possible, but at hand!
