  • A Sermon on The Song of MARY: "My Spirit Rejoices" by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    Sermon Central ^ | 17 December 1933 | Dietrich Bonhoeffer
    The song of Mary is the oldest Advent hymn. It is also the most passionate, the wildest, and one might almost say the most revolutionary Advent hymn that has ever been sung. This is not the gentle, tender, dreamy Mary as we often see her portrayed in paintings. This Mary...is passionate, carried away, proud, enthusiastic. There is none of the sweet, wistful, or even playful tone of many of our Christmas carols, but instead a hard, strong, relentless hymn about the toppling of the thrones and the humiliation of the lords of this world, about the power of God and...

    A nice long discussion of the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Interestingly, Amir says the waiver was signed. (Looks like even the New York Times didn't know that. They say he WILL sign it.) More interesting stuff about Turkey, a clarification of recent events, and lots of good words about our president. Enjoy your early Christmas present!

    The Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | 12/8/17 | Reporters
    Pope Francis has called on the Roman Catholic Church to alter the Lords Prayer because he believes the current translation suggests God is capable of leading us into temptation. Instead, Our father, which is the best known prayer in Christianity, should be said using the phrasing adopted by French bishops, which reads as do not let us enter into temptation. The alternative wording used in France implies that it is through human fault that people are led to sin, rather than by God. The pontiff made the suggestion during a televised interview on Wednesday evening, in which he claimed that...
