the theological reason why Jesus was born in a stable

"Born in a Stable" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

<BUY THIS CARTOON >

I remember Bono saying,
"The Christmas story has a crazy good plot with an even crazier premise. The idea goes, if there is a force of love and logic behind the universe, then how amazing would it be if that incomprehensible power chose to express itself as a child born in shit and straw poverty.”
That, essentially, captures the meaning behind this cartoon. But, more than that, I believe that even in the midst of our messiest humanity, even today, there is still the power of love and logic that, if we give room, will win the day. I hold to that.
