If you listen closely to the hymns and take a good look at those cards you’ve been receiving, it starts to get a little confusing. Are we celebrating Jesus or Emmanuel? In fact, Jesus IS Immanuel! Immanuel means “God with us” and is the reason we’re gathering today. It isn’t just a historical reality or ancient expression, it’s still true. Jesus is still Immanuel and Jesus is still with us. Even better, God with us is still true after the Christmas season. He isn’t hiding, He isn’t absent, He is with us!
