On a clergy day out today the craic supplied by our Dublin bus driver was, as always, informative and hilarious.
At one point he said: "Being born in a stable does not make one a horse."
Of course he was unaware that he was transporting a group of ministers (we never admit to what we do on days out!). But his one-liner struck me as being particularly profound in this season of Advent.
The one we prepare to celebrate, born in a stable, was not a horse but the Prince of Peace.
A sacred moment and pause for thought on a Dublin bus!
