International Crib Museum

In the heart of Bethlehem is the International Nativity Museum. The Museum has a collection of over 200 Nativity representations of different styles and dimensions. It is located in the Salesian convent. The variety of the cribs, originating from all around the world, shows a great array of customs, liturgy and rituality from many countries and ethnic groups. On Saturday last the latest addition to the collection came from Kolkata in India (below):

That is really cool.

I am privileged to be invited to do Tech Support for an intentional community of retired ministers and non-profit workers. Many of them are missionaries from all over the world. They frequently have artifacts depicting Christianity through the eyes of various cultures, and it is fascinating. I love going over there.
These things can often be fascinating and inspiring.
