Opening with a dramatic reading of Luke 2:1-14, this special program presents the challenge of the Bethlehem story-when an innkeeper decided there was “no room in the inn.”
There was a knock at the door, a plea for a place to birth a child. But someone would have to give up a bed and the cries of a newborn might disturb sleep. Suddenly it just became easier to say, “We’re sorry, there’s no room.”
This Christmas message from Carter Conlon, including a stirring testimony of a young woman who did find room in the inn, reminds the people of God to respond when a “knock” comes. Will it be a phone call to answer, a meal to provide, a guest invited to celebrate the season? Are we ready to answer the knock and make room in the inn?
