Religion & Spirituality
For the 4th week of Advent Stori and Rayah host the conversation around Luke 1:46-55 - The Magnificat or Song of Mary. Stori and Rayah reflect on a shared church history of sidelining or downplaying Mary. Rayah talks about how Mary’s song isnt just a quoting of the prophets or learned scriptures, but an embodied song of hope in her own words. Stori talks about the beauty and heartbreak of Mary’s resilient, enduring presence throughout the entire gospel story.
Stori Long is a Pastor and Social Media Organizer at Storyline Community in Milwaukie, Oregon.
Rayah Dickerson is a community member and activist in Milwaukie, Oregon.
The Body of Christ
The Gifts of the Spirit
Being in the Beloved
Joy is not an incident
Slowness is not a compromise
Good news always starts in the margins
The reign of Christ and co-suffering love
The end of Empire, the birth of a new story
Sitting in sacred sadness
The ‘Greatest Commandment‘ but not the easiest
Honoring agency and seeing those in the margins
Letting go of systems of power
It‘s okay if everything is not okay
Finding God in the Community
The Pain of Prophecy and Defiant Hope
The Suffering Servant is Just One Part of the Story
The Intimacy of Creation, The Art of Seeing
A Difficult Teaching
Into The Ever
