Third Sunday in Advent – we light the candle of Joy


“Who do you want to be when you are older? What do you hope your church will be like, or your wider community, indeed our nation, our world? Questions like these, and their answers, flow strongly out of the prophetic vein of our tradition. In our reading for today, often called the ‘Magnificat” after the Latin word for magnify, Mary, as a prophetess, names the plight of her days and our days (as some things do indeed not change). With a holy candor she shares a lucid assessment of how the proud, powerful and rich are living out of balance with God’s shalom vision  for us all — for all of creation.”
