Mary and Joseph Are Arriving: David Dault Takes Us Into Christmas Weekend

I just wanted to share these powerful words from a my friend David Dault, host of “Things Not Seen”. Let these words lead you into the heart of the Christmas story. Thank you David for writing so beautifully.

“Somewhere, this weekend, in a forgotten corner of your city, Mary and Joseph have just arrived in town. They are hungry, and exhausted, and they’re looking desperately for a place to sleep.

If you have money in your pockets this Christmas, congratulations. You are one of the Magi.

If you have a spare room to offer, congratulations. You are the Innkeeper.

If you have nothing but a kind word to speak, congratulations. You are a heralding angel.

The story of Christmas isn’t complete until you figure out who you are — in relation to the family that is lost in your city and in great need — and play your part.”
