Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others. See links at the bottom of this page to submit your contribution.

No Room In The Inn? Born In A Manger?


It has become a popular cultural tradition around Christmas time to hear that Christ was born in a manger because there was no room in the inn. However the New Testament mentions neither a manger as we understand it nor an inn when describing the Christmas story. For more details on this topic and possible alternative explanations, I recommend the following articles:

Away in a Manger, but Not in a Barn

"No Room in the Inn"
