As an extension of the weekly scripture and devotion offering through the FastPrayGive.org program, we’re proud to offer an Advent through Epiphany guide. (November 28th through January 6th)
In this work, three great “responses” (and that to which they respond) form a triptych:
- The Magnificat (Luke 1:26-55)
- The Benedictus (Luke 1:5-25, 39-80)
- The Gloria (Luke 2:1-21)
The three find mother-to-be Mary, new father Zecheriah, and the very angels of heaven “responding” to events by which God will be and is made flesh, coming among us to stay. Like the artwork format (triptych) which shares its name with this guide, all three “hinge” upon the themes of a God who acts, a God who imagines a world made new, a God who proclaims the way of peace.
FastPrayGive.org hopes that this will lead you on a spiritual journey in this season as we remember and rehearse the birth of Jesus and help make your experience enjoyable.
