December 5th

| John and Linda Knape read Luke 1:34-38 (well... Linda read it. But John held her microphone!) | Benjamin J Nichols sings I Surrender All | Ben shares a meditation on the uncommon wisdom of Mary |


Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.”

The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.

What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month.

Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her. [Luke 1:34-38]
