I promised to post my Christmas sermon series. This first one looks at the predictions of a savior called “Immanel.” In this first lesson we will look at how waiting for a savior has sometimes kept nations in bondage and kept individuals from taking responsibility for their lives.  We will look at the prophecy of Immanuel not as a prediction of a future leader, but as a vision of how the world will look and feel to those who answer its call to live courageously today.
