the theological reason why Jesus was born in a stable
"Born in a Stable" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
<BUY THIS CARTOON >
I remember Bono saying
"The Christmas story has a crazy good plot with an even crazier premise. The idea goes, if there is a force of love and logic behind the universe, then how amazing would it be if that incomprehensible power chose to express itself as a child born in shit and straw poverty.‚Äù
That, essentially, captures the meaning behind this cartoon.
But, more than that, I believe that even in the midst of our messiest humanity, even today, there is still the power of love and logic that, if we give room, will¬†win the day.
I hold to that.
