If Joseph and Mary had a smart phone, they would have missed the silent night. Joseph would’ve been preoccupied finding the right angle and then become exasperated while selecting the most flattering filter (especially with such “crappy lighting in here, people!”). Mary most likely would have rejected the initial pics as it wasn’t her “best side”. Don’t even get me started on the sheep.
Some events need not be captured this holiday season. Set the phone down, make room for silence, breathe in peace and enjoy a night of unorchestrated moments. I’ll try to do the same.
