Rev Sandy Boyce
Advent 4 – The Magnificat, or Song of Mary, is simple, straightforward, and profound. It reverses the way things are, revealing a God of compassion and justice for the oppressed. And not only for the oppressed, but also for those who work alongside of the oppressed. It is a song, not an oration – and songs are powerful. Words are not always needed; St Francis of Assissi is supposed to have said, "Preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary use words." The Magnificat is a mixture of politics and religion, calling for a re-orientation of unjust systems. It gives confidence, and a courageous hope in God.
Luke 1: 39-55
