It is the day after Christmas. If you are anything like me this day feels as empty as boxes and tumbleweeds of wrapping paper surrounding a still nicely decorated, but significantly dry conifer. We have waited, longed for, and anticipated Christmas Day–the 25th of December. Anticipated the Advent of Christ, the coming of Emmanuel. But, now on the the 26th, Advent and our waiting has come and gone. It seems that Jesus too has come and gone. Now what?

unwrap the presents under the tree celebrate the birth of God in human flesh. The day when God becomes with us. Emmanuel, God is with us. What does this mean that God is with us? What are the implications of God living among us? How should Christmas change our lives?
