“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). Matt 1:23Immanuel God with us. From Zion to earth and birth to death, the eternal to the temporal, Holiness to sin. Immanuel in my daily work and rest, my highs and lows, the good and bad. Emmanuel when we wage war and quarrel. Personally and communally. When we help or hinder. When a child lives or dies. When nations and empires rage and fall. Emmanuel on my journey by day or by life, my eyes open or closed. My life open or closed. Emmanuel, “I will never leave you or fosake you.” Emmanuel, will I leave you or forget you? will we stumble with our eyes shut to the light? Emmanuel, “Are you there?” “God with us” You are!
