Thoughts on the Nativity Story

So, in the actual words of the shepherds, ‘let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened’. That something remarkable happened is beyond question, but one would never have known it had one stumbled across the scene. A young mother, nursing her new son amid the squalor and dust of the earth, with a young man – whom one would presume to be the father – looking on. No angels. No halos. No heavenly music in the background. Nothing but the sounds of people and the smells of animals or vice versa.
