On January 1, which falls on a Sunday in 2017, we also celebrate the Name of Jesus. It’s one of those days that doesn’t often get the recognition it deserves because not many churches have services on New Year’s Day.
The Christmas story teaches us about opening ourselves up to what God is trying to do in us in this world.
For many of us however, The Magnificat is just a pretty song that we sing at Evening Prayer and during Advent. Yet if you listen to the text carefully you’ll note that it’s a revolutionary song—perhaps one of the most revolutionary documents available.
