 The God “With Us” Calendar

In 1868, Phillips Brooks wrote the well-known Christmas carol, “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” He could have easily penned the song in 2016. The lyrics describe well our present reality and need: “Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light; the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.” Christmas for many can be “the most wonderful time of the year.” Equally, Christmastime can bring out the “crazy” in all of us.

At Forge, we want you to experience this Christmas season in the deepest and most meaningful way—no matter what circumstances surround you. So, here’s a present from us to you: it’s the gift of God’s promised presence, the reassurance that God is not only “with you” but invites you to life “with Him” all along the way. The gift is simple, practical, and potentially powerful. Each day’s engagement includes a reminder from scripture that God is present and at work right where you are, as well as, a practical opportunity to engage and respond to our always-with-you God.

We’re praying with you this Christmas season the conclusion of Phillips Brooks’ song and prayer: “O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel.”download_button_violet_3
