Las Posadas, Spanish for lodging, refers to the Nativity story where Joseph and Mary search for an “inn” in Bethlehem. ​​ Celebrated for over four centuries in Latin America, Joseph and​​ Mary are turned away at each door. Westminster’s worship service reminds us that Joseph and Mary are strangers (refugees), and as Jesus taught in Matthew 25:35, His followers are called to welcome strangers and provide them shelter. Listen to our Worship Service at link​​ December 8, 2019.

A knock on he door is answered, but they are turned away.

Again and again Joseph and Mary seek shelter, but again and​​ again they are tuened away, and Jesus is born in a stable.
