The Magnificat, the song that Mary sings in the first chapter of Luke, feels like it could have been written yesterday. In a world torn apart by racism and economic injustice, by war and violence, a world in which the rich get richer and the poor are abandoned, these words are ones we need to hear loudly and clearly again during this advent season.

Think about incorporating this video created by SALT (available at and the song "Holy Is Your Name," by the Many, written from the perspective of Mary, in your worship service.
