Sojourners Verse and Voice – 23 December 2021

December 23, 2021

Verse of the day
While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

– Luke 2:6-7

Voice of the day
Into this world, this demented inn, in which there is absolutely no room for him at all, Christ comes uninvited.

– Thomas Merton, Raids on the Unspeakable (1966)

Prayer of the day May we follow your example of radical welcome, making room for those who have been uninvited.
