Christmas Day: Emmanuel is not the ‘God for them’ but the ‘God with us’
In this podcast on Christmas Day at St Luke’s Church Peckham Ian Mobsby explores the meaning of ‘Emmanuel’ as ‘God with us’. Too often in Christianity the story of the birth of Jesus is heard as the story of the God ‘for them’. This homily explores the generous and scandalous love of God, that seeks to come as a fragile human being for hope for all people. The paradox of a man coming from God who was truly God and truly human.
