The Chrismas (Episcopal) Spirit
When a young couple were in graduate school at Duke University,their parish put on the standard children's Christmas pageant.
The little boy who was to play the innkeeper kept insisting that he just couldn't turn Mary and Joseph away.
Those in charge explained repeatedly that he had to; that's how it happened.
So the moment came in the pageant, and the boy said, "I'm sorry, there is no room in the inn, but won't you at least come in and have a drink?"
