God with Us - Advent 2017
“Emmanuel.” In Hebrew it means “God with Us,” and we sing about it every December. But by limiting Emmanuel to Christmas carols, have we missed the main point? This Advent season, we’ll discover that the biggest problems in our lives—and in our world—trace back to the same source: our lack of Emmanuel. And we’ll see how the story of Scripture, from the Garden of Eden to the stable of Bethlehem and beyond, is really the story of God with Us: how we lost his presence, how we try to get it back, and how what happened that first Christmas is the turning point in the whole story.
