Magnificat: December 21, 2019

He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts. – Luke 1:51

When I read this passage, I immediately think of our society today. I picture God’s mighty arm sweeping away all of the proud, rich and powerful, leaving room for those who have little or nothing to be restored to health and well-being. God will be faithful in doing this, but we must take part in it. It is good to pray for God’s help, but we must also act. As we say in our Mission Statement, “…we are recipients of and participants in that healing and restoration.” What are we, as individuals and as a community, doing to bring this about?

Lord, help us to be part of making your world a good place for all to live to your glory. Amen.
