We all know the story; the details are familiar. Mary is pregnant with God’s Son. Joseph, her husband, is at her side. Political officials have decreed that they must go to Bethlehem to register. Rome, the oppressor, was keeping track of her subjects. Joseph walks while Mary sits astride their donkey for the arduous journey from Galilee. When they arrive, there is no room for them in any dwelling, so they settle for a stable and prepare for the birth of their son.
