Monroe Street lililP Tallahassee, Florida .385-2193 MeadowWood 7 That First Christmas Eve fin That Fir;t Chri5tmas Eve ... ffy when Mary and Joseph were on the highway from Nazareth to Bethlehem, nobody paid much attention to them. They looked about like all tne other travelers . . . Tew possessions, common folks, strangers. Arriving late in Bethlehem, Joseph looked for a place to get Mary in out of the weather. She was weary with the journey and desperately in need of a warm, dry room. She was about to give birth to the greatest person who ever lived, the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. But, nobody in town knew ... or cared. All had their own troubles, their own families to care for. Like us, they were too busy to notice . . . just another homeless stranger. "There was no room for them" anywhere in town on that fateful night . . . until someone, we know not who, had mercy. Some "good Samaritan" who cared for those need and had a stable and . . .well, you know the rest of the story. It is nearly Christmas Eve again in Tallahassee. Other strangers will be traveling the streets and highways of our town. The sounds of Christmas carols will drift out from our warm and happy homes into the cold and lonely night. Where will the stranger, for whom there is no room, stay? Will there be another good Samaritan, a friendly face, a warm bath, a meal, a bed? Who in our town will notice or care? A Rescue Mission is almost ready to receive those for whom there is no room If we all would help just a little, we could open our doors Christmas Eve and de those basic needs. More importantly, we could introduce those lonely people to that other stranger, the stranger of Galilee who was born in that Bethlehem Rescue Mission many years ago.
