Discovery: New Every Morning: The Magnificat: Saying Yes through the Art and Music of the Magnificat
This year’s Discovery theme, “New Every Morning,” reminds us that God promises not so much consistency as constancy – steadfast, loving faithfulness through changes, large and small. In the prayer known as The Magnificat (Luke 1:46-55), Mary says “yes” to God’s audacious, mind-boggling, world-changing invitation to give birth to the One by whom all will be measured and blessed. She knows that nothing will ever be the same, as the mighty are cast down and the lowly raised up. In the four Sundays in Advent we will explore how we, like Mary, can access the spiritual resources we need to navigate the places of upheaval, change, and promise in our lives.
This week's guest is Susan Ward, Trinity parishioner and professor of history of art and visual culture, Rhode Island School of Design.
