Day 3: Emmanuel

      This is probably the simplest carol of them all. A single verse, and very few words. However, it is beautiful in its simplicity. And it still manages to evoke all those feelings of wonder that thinking of the birth of Christ should. Perhaps you can find time to sing this one twice?

Link to lyrics: "Emmanuel" (by Bob McGee-there are several songs by this title)

The Baptist Hymnal (1991): #82

Questions for thought and discussion:
 1. How is "God with us" now?

2.If Jesus birth signaled "God with us" (since He was called "Emmanuel") had God not been there before? What changed about His presence with Jesus birth? How did that change again after Christ's ascension?

3. What specific events in your life have proven to you that "God with us" is really true?
