From the beginning, writers of the Christmas story have been bothered by the inn,
with the stable and manger close at hand. 
That is where we find ourselves: not by the shepherds, whose poverty and simplicity we lack; and not by the wise men, whose watchfulness
and decisiveness we lack. We are, at best,
guests at the inn. We sleep; we follow our
own plans and dreams. 
Can we be awakened by the angels’ news?
That is the question.
