Advent 4 ~ Mary’s Song: The Journey to Justice

For the 4 Sundays of Advent this year, I’m focusing on Luke chapter one up until Mary’s Song.  The first week, we looked at Zechariah.  The second week, Mary.  Last week, Elizabeth. And now we’ll conclude our Advent reflections with Mary’s Song.

Mary’s Song: The Journey to Justice

Read: Luke 1: 46 – 55

Angels and miraculous conceptions; honour in place of shame; belief instead of bitterness; declarations of blessing.  The story up to this point has exposed the worst and the best of what it is to be human in relationship with God.  Inner turmoil, paralyzing fear….. emergence of strength, confidence, and owning our worth.
