“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.”
- Luke 1:38
Today as you reflect on this humble, simple response by Mary to God’s crazy, wonderful, dangerous, costly plan, use these two tools to help you think about your response to God this season. The first is a painting by the Haitian artist Ismael Saincilus to ponder (What surprises you in it? What comforts you? What is it saying to you about Mary?); the second is a poem/prayer by an Old Testament scholar, Walter Brueggemann (Pray it quietly to yourself).
