What a wonderful name: Emmanuel – sometimes spelled with an E, sometimes with an I, sometimes with one M and sometimes with two…
God is with us. We do not wait for God apart from God. Even while we wait for something we know God is going to do, we are held by God and reminded of all that God has already done.
There is not a moment, even now – even in this time of isolation and distancing, there is not a moment when we are alone. God is with us… even while we wait for God’s arrival.
Emmanuel, we give thanks for your faithful presence. We pray for those who feel alone or forgotten or unworthy of love. As you are with us, so also be present through us: that all the world may know the Light of your love. Amen.
