Who could have imagined, only a few months ago, that the idea of shelter would become such a focus of all our lives. Shelter, for most, is security. What was shelter for the Holy Family? Remember they had left their home in Nazareth to travel to Bethlehem. The shelter they urgently sought was to be the place where the Child was born. And down through the history of portrayals of the Birth, the way the shelter has been shown, has said so much about artists and cultures. This year we will talk about shelter, and what it means and says about our humanity. Admission is free – Our Christmas gift to you! We will be offering our Nativity Exhibit in a safe and socially-distant format.
