Advent Devotional

Weekly Reading: Luke 1: 46-55

Weekly Reflection: My Soul Proclaims: Submission and Subversion in Mary's Magnificat

Weekly Prayer:
"Eternal Source of birth and new life, help us to prepare ourselves for the coming Christ. Smooth out our roughness when it hurts ourselves or others. Lift up the hidden parts of ourselves - the talents, the visions, the tenderness - so that your love may be seen and your glory revealed among us. As this season unfolds, help us, like Mary, rejoice in your surprising love."

The prayer come from Flames of the Spirit edited by Ruth Duck (Pilgrim Press, 1985).
