M Luke 1.1-25: God speaks to the priest in the temple-much to his great surprise! What are your honest expectations of a meeting with God when you worship?
T Luke 1.26-38: ‘Here I am; let it be to me according to your word…’; where is God prompting you to yield to something new and risky in faith?
W Luke 1.39-56: where do power and wealth bring oppression today and whom does it oppress? Keeping those in mind, read Mary’s song again.
T Luke 1.57-end: John is born to be a signpost to Christ for the sake of others; who is God calling you to be and how will you point others in God’s direction?
F Luke 2.1-20: Mary ponders her son (19); when and why did you last ponder anything? What might it mean for you to ponder Jesus, like Mary did, as well?
S Luke 2.21-40: Simeon sees Jesus as the light of God (32) & as someone who will unsettle many (34); what does it mean that Jesus manifests both?
