A04: The Fourth Sunday of Advent, Year A

Carla Pratt Keyes

Carla Pratt Keyes, Pastor of Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia, preaches a sermon called “Emmanuel” from Matthew 1:18-25. God is with us, all right, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. “To walk through the fog of God toward the clarity of Christ is difficult,” Keyes says, “because of how unlovely, how ungodly, that clarity often turns out to be.”
