    Thank you for the opportunity to “receive”.

  2. Once I visited a young mother in the hospital after she had given birth to a baby girl she named Emmanuel. I had the privilege of holding Emmanuel for about thirty minutes before feeding time. When I gave her back to her mother, I said, “Thank you for letting me look upon the face of God.” I was not just making a play on her name, which means “God with us,” though that is certainly true. Mother Teresa of Calcutta once asked a United Methodist official who was holding a baby she had just rescued from a garbage dump, “Do you see God in that baby’s eyes? God gives himself to us in the needy of the world.”
