Room In the Inn
by Elma Helgason
"Is there room in the Inn?" No! They sent Him away
On that first Christmas Eve, long ago.
Is there room in the inn of our hearts every day
For the spirit of Christmas to glow?
We say we want new life, represented today by the blue and gold butterfly ornament, a life transformed and made new. We know that it is only through life with Jesus that we can find the life we seek. But is that just "head knowledge?" An understanding that we assent to intellectually, but which doesn't guide or change our behavior? Do we open the doors of our hearts, making ourselves vulnerable to God and others?
