December 22 - #AdventWord #Magnify
“Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.” - Ezekiel 38:23
Magnify has both secular and non-secular meanings. Since the 1800s, the use of the word magnify has been on the decline. But during this season of Advent, we should be reminded that magnify appears in scriptures at least 36 times. It is a word of praise and exaltation of the name, mercy, and other attributes of God, God’s words, Christ and even man!
—Harriett Green, Church of the Good Shepherd, Sumter
As part of this effort to create a global, online advent calendar -- led by Forward Movement -- we will share a new word each day from November 28-December 25, 2021, with meditations from people around the diocese. Each day, the meditation will be accompanied by an image relating to the word of the day as well.
