12/8/21 • No Room • Week 1

"There was no room for Him in the inn" (Luke 2:7). This familiar refrain is a part of the popular Christmas narrative both for Christians and for our culture at large. In this two-week series, we will dig into the historical context in which Jesus was born in order to understand what it meant for there to be no room for Jesus. As we connect history with our modern experience, this series encourages us to make room for Jesus in our own lives.

Main Scripture: Luke 2:1-20
