Immanuel | God with us?
Try to keep the song out of your head, but what if God was among us?
Bush thinks God is with him. So do Hamas.
Perhaps the Ipswich serial killer does too?
How would we respond if God was with us?
With a power trip?
How did Mary and Joseph deal with the knowledge they were carrying God?
Did they laud it over others?
As we come to Christmas: God coming to us:
There are those who desperately need God to be with them.
Will we be incarnate?
With those we know who are ill.
With those who are absent.
Communion: we celebrate our togetherness.
With each other. With God.
And we wait for Immanuel.
