Video: If Mary went shopping

An Advent video to encourage reflection on how we spend money in the lead up to Christmas.

The Magnificat (Mary’s song in Luke 1:46-55) speaks of an economy turned upside-down, where the hungry are filled with good things and the rich are sent away empty. 

The pandemic has exacerbated inequality in our society, with some big businesses making vast profits and households on low-incomes struggling to buy everyday groceries. 

Use this video with your church to explore the values at the heart of Mary’s song and our role as Christians in shaping a fairer economy.
