This Advent season I have been pondering Kendall Soulen’s idea that the second person of the Trinity especially speaks to us of God’s presence. The season leads to nativity, incarnation, and human flesh as the tabernacle of God. We emphasize the name Emmanuel, which means “God with us” (Matthew 1:23).
I have been trying to integrate this insight into my spirituality.
