Revolution (Luke 1:39-55)

The story of Mary becoming pregnant and giving birth to Jesus is one of the best known stories in Christianity. Within the story, Mary sings a song, often used in the worship of more traditional denominations, and known as the Magnificat. This song seems to be a call for revolution, bringing down the powers that be and replacing them with ordinary people. It is a remark-able and dangerous song for a poor young girl from Nazareth to sing. The thoughts within it would be dangerous to sing anywhere in the world today. What was Mary trying to communicate through her song and dare we sing it too?
