A Gloucester Nativity


Thought I’d write a modern-day Nativity story, based where I live – the lovely city of Gloucester. Disclaimer: This story does not claim historical, theological, biblical or cultural accuracy. Please don’t judge me for twisting, shaping, interpreting and adding to the original accounts – the aim behind this story is not to educate or to offer a new translation, but simply to help us reflect a little on the thoughts and experiences that the Holy Family might have encountered, and to ponder what our own responses might be to situations that arise in our own lives.
