Advent 4: Mary’s Song of Redemptive Revolution
In this podcast on the fourth Sunday of Advent, 2015, Ian Mobsby explores the context and meaning of Mary’s Song of Redemptive Revolution as recorded in the Gospel of Luke 1.39-45[46-55]. This text commonaly called the Magnificat, is said at Evening Prayer in most Anglican Churches and religious communities. As such Mary’s vision is deeply political in that it seeks the common good for economic, social and ecological justice. This not a violent revolution, but a calling for all those who have and have not to come to the table as equal particpants in the Kingdom of God.
