Advent Blogging: The Magnificat

icon I wrote last year
I will finally be blogging a series on Mary's Magnificat for this Advent. (I am also thinking about #AdventWord, the only reason I joined Instagram a couple of weeks ago.)

I think I first talked about doing this blog series a couple of years ago after I led a series with fellow bloggers on the Prayer Attributed to St. Francis.

The Magnificat is a song about so much, I didn't know where to start. It's so hard to get my head around. So I put it off.

Today I made a start on the first post for the series, but looking ahead, given the grand jury decision in Ferguson that I just heard about ...

I don't know how I can write about this without coming off as ridiculously white-privileged.

It's a song of joy. It's a song celebrating the Messiah's impending arrival.

It's a song of freedom coming, long hoped for.

Yeah, I don't know what I'm going to say. I don't know if I'm going to say it right.

So I invite you to share your voices. Agree, disagree, discuss in the comments, or on your own blogs or where ever.

The first post will be December 1st.
