A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.

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!”
