If you were God...

If you were God and decided 
to come in the flesh to make your love for the world tangible
I bet you wouldn’t choose to start with 
an insignificant, unmarried, village girl 
and get her pregnant! 
Especially when that would cause huge scandal in the community 
and especially when the wrath of the paranoid ruler meant 
the little family had to escape the country.

Which just goes to show that we are haven’t a clue 
about what God is up to most of the time! 
That’s cause for hope... and anticipation of what might happen next!

If you have five minutes of quiet reflective time today Click here to listen to this beautiful piano and cello rendition of O Come O Come Immanuel

We sing this every Sunday during Advent but change "Israel" to "Ponsonby" (where our Church is). Try inserting  the name of your location or city. Here are the words of the first verse:
O come O come Immanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
