Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of my summer schedule, in which I'm serving as a camp pastor on top of my normal duties, I'll be putting my ongoing Thursday and Friday series on hold until mid-August. All other days will continue to feature new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

The Evangeliad (1:40-46)



So up went Mary to her cousin's home,
On up into Judah's high hills of stone.
And when Elizabeth had heard her voice,
The young child within her leapt for joy.

Filled with Spirit, Elizabeth proclaimed:
“Most blessed among women is your name!
And blessed as well is the child you bear!
Oh, who, who am I, that you should come here?

Yes, Mary, you—the mother of my Lord!
My baby danced at the sound of your word!
Blessed is she who held it as certain
That God would fulfill all He had spoken!”
