Hope And Revolution, Advent 2020

Next to a statue of Mary holding flowers, rosaries and bracelets, are the words "God has cast down the mighty from their thrones, and has lifted up the lowly.  God has filled the hungry with good things and the rich she has sent away empty.  God has come to the help of his servant Israel, for she has remembered her promise of mercy"

I didn’t love the Magnificat, Mary’s Song, until seminary. But ever since then I’ve only fallen further and further in love with the depth of Mary’s vision and hope. Aside from being deeply revolutionary and hopeful, it’s also deeply faithful. And, I think, offers us a faithful perspective to consider as we begin to rebuild our post-pandemic world.

I worked most closely with the Magnificat, which is Luke 1.46-55.
