Emmanuel is all around us!

“Advent is not a season. Advent is a way of responding to a God who comes to us....not always according to our calculation, not always in the way we would desire, but in ways that are fitting for God’s justice and grace.” -Fred Craddock, adapted


This Advent at Cross of Glory, as we await God’s incarnate coming, we're exploring the ways that Emanuel (God With Us) dwells among us already. The Bible includes dozens of different names for and images of God, each of which remind us that God is both bigger than we can imagine, and also perhaps nearer than we expect. As Craddock says above, God comes to us in ways that don’t always function according to our calculations, preferences, or expectations.


That was certainly the case on Christmas, when God took on flesh and showed up in a barn in Bethlehem. As we wait for and prepare for that night, we invite you to join us this Advent season as we explore the ways that Emmanuel is already with us--here and now.
