With us

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         
         

Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel,
which means “God is with us.”

         — Matthew 1.23

God is not against us,
         but with us.
For us.

God is not above us,
         but with us.
Among us.

God is not separate from us
         but with us.
Within us.

We will not find the Divine
by gazing into heaven
but by attending to our lives,
our hearts, our relationships—
looking to the human mystery
and the wild love married to us,
the delighted presence
even now walking hand in hand
with us.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
