Unplanned journeys

Advent is more than a calendar. It’s a season to journey, reflect and prepare for Christmas.

For Joseph and Mary, the journey to Bethlehem was anything but simple. They made the 90-mile trek through the Judean desert, knowing the baby could be born at any time. The journey was slow, along unpaved, hilly trails, with harsh weather. There may have been threats from wild animals and robbers too. Sounds remarkably similar to many of the journeys refugees like Eliana and Jeiber experience today, as they travel to find a safe haven.

So, Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.”

(Luke 2:4 NIV)
