What would baby Jesus and his parents represent in this story?
Poor. Disenfranchised. Marginalized. Voiceless. Vulnerable. Stigmatized. Wandering.
Systems and their caretakers don't realize, or if they do don't care, that with power comes privilege. Usually unconsciously those like the family described above simply can't find space in the system that has any significant meaning. Oh, anyone can attend. Just be there. But who among them can find a place, a voice, a home?
This to me is one of the most pointed questions the Christmas story puts.
