God with us--still!

"This is the great mystery of Christmas that continues to give us comfort and consolation: we are not alone on our journey."
Henri Nouwen, "The Lord is Near"

What a beautiful message as we wind up week three of Advent! The Incarnation gives us God, in our world, in the body of one of us, experiencing much of what we experience, and showing us how to do it. Then underneath that magnificent reality is the fact that God came to us and STAYED. No more are we wandering alone, not knowing which way to go. No longer are we suffering alone in the bad times. No longer are we dancing alone in the good. God with us. Immanuel. Amazing! Love, heidi
