The World is About to Turn: Advent Worship

In the Magnificat, Mary doesn’t sing it in the future tense. She sings as if these things have already come to pass, even as she looks toward what will come. This is it, really. This is what it means to live as followers of Jesus: to live in the midst of the already/not yet. To look toward the Kin-dom of God even while we catch glimpses of it all around us. To wait for Jesus, both this season and always, believing in the promise that the world is about to turn. This Advent season, each Sunday and Wednesday, we’ll explore the verses and context around Mary’s song, progressively sing the Canticle of the Turning – a hymn based on this passage, and move together toward the manger in a spirit of waiting and preparation.
