Making A Difference In The Nation's Capital Through Prayer And Action

What? No room?

Dec 2, 2018

Only eleven days to go until Live Nativity 2018 and we need you to stand with us! 

As we continue our countdown to the Live Nativity processional on Capitol Hill, think for a moment about a brief statement in Luke’s description of the birth of Jesus. 

“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. (Luke 2:7) 

No room. 

While it seems almost an afterthought, think of the power of those two words! The word translated ‘inn’ is not the usual word for a lodging place. Instead it simply means an enclosure where travelers could drive their cattle for the night, and which might also have a few rooms where the travelers could stay. But even these sparse lodgings were full. Because of the census, strangers were crowding into the tiny village of Bethlehem, leaving no room for the miracle God was about to visit upon the world. 

No room for the miracle. It wasn’t intentional – it was just the busyness of the matters at hand. The place was packed due to the influx of visitors caused by the census and no one was considering that God incarnate might appear in their midst. 

How often Washington, DC, is just like that inn. Filled with legislators, lobbyists, special interests, and the press, the corridors of our nation’s capital are consumed with considering the great matters of state. So busy…such important issues! There’s no room for personal issues like faith or God.  

But we are there to remind our policy makers of their responsibility to God and to His Word!

That’s why we do the Live Nativity! As the caravan processes in front of the US Supreme Court and across from the senate offices and the US Capitol, it serves as a clear and unmistakable illustration to our national leaders of the miracle of the incarnation. The presence of the holy family reminds our nation that this tiny baby, born in a manger so many years ago, is the one upon whose shoulders God has placed all government. And we need to make room for Him in governing! 

But we need your help to make Live Nativity 2018 happen! Right now we need to raise $10,000 to meet expenses. Will you stand with us through your prayers and giving?  

Your investment of $25, $35, $50, or even $100 or more for the Live Nativity will result in a bold and dramatic proclamation of the Gospel to those on Capitol Hill.

Thank you for your prayers! Thank you for your generosity! And remember, Christ is born! Let all the earth – including our national leaders – recognize His authority!
