Magnificent Joy

This week our scripture text is Mary's song of joy prompted by the angel Gabriel's news that she would have a son. Her song resonates with echoes of Isaiah's prophecy and themes that we see throughout Luke's account of Jesus' time on earth. Luke's nativity story, the one with which we are probably most familiar, is told in chapter 2. Read chapter 1 this week and enjoy what happens with Zechariah, Elizabeth, Mary, and Gabriel. What surprises you in these stories? What brings you joy?
