Welcome to Emmanuel United Church of Christ

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and will have a great New Year!
I want to thank everyone for my Christmas gift. I will enjoy it when Archie and I go to
Richmond this week. Lisa and I always have a good time shopping together even though neither
of us really needs anything. It’s good just being together – leaving the guys at home. (I actually
believe they like being left behind.)
Here is a poem for the season by Ann Weems

It is not over,
this birthing.
There are always newer skies
into which
God can throw stars.
When we begin to think
that we can predict the Advent of God,
that we can box the Christ
in a stable in Bethlehem,
that’s just the time
that God will be born
in a place we can’t imagine and won’t believe.
Those who wait for God
watch with their hearts and not their eyes,
always listening
for angel words.

Let’s all watch with our hearts as we head into the New Year.
God be with you in 2014.
