This morning in staff chapel Carol Cartmill, Resurrection’s Director of Community Life, shared a great message titled, “The Paradox of Blessedness.” In it she used a piece of Barclay’s commentary that calls Mary’s Magnifcat one of the most revolutionary pieces of literature the world has ever known. If I got it in my notes correctly, it is:
- Spiritualy Revolutionary
- Socially Revolutionary
- Economically Revolutionary
I enjoyed looking at the text in each of these ways. Additionally, Barclay gave a head-nod to to Hannah’s song in 1 Samual, which I appreciated!
I was blessed in Staff Chapel this morning, as I often am.
