The First Baptist Church is excited to announce that we now have a new pastor. His name is Brother Dwain Pollard and if you haven’t heard Bro. Pollard preach before, you should make a point to attend this coming Sunday morning. It is sure to be a blessing.
Bethlehem was a very small village, sitting in the middle of an area used mostly for raising sheep and goats. The inn in such villages was usually simple lean – to shelters built off the wall of the main house, the other end open.Several men could share such a room, which would keep the rain off of them. When Mary and Joseph arrived, it presented a need that the inn keeper could not provide for. So, they took shelter in a little cave washed out beneath an overhanging rock, with a fence around the outside to keep animals in. So, perhaps instead of this grouchy guy that refused to give them a room, he did all that he could to help them. In reality, the stable was probably better, for privacy and a built in baby bed, a trough used to feed animals.
Everything about the Christmas story is amazing, and shows the humbleness of God, and His love for each of us.
