|"The Annunciation" Brigid Marlin|
My friend and former secretary, Anita wrote this wonderful meditation about Mary, Mary: Less is More. And a couple of comments got hung up on her opening statement that she was "far from perfect". Okay, I can understand Roman Catholics and Orthodox not liking that perspective. But the name of the blog is "Living Lutheran" And surprise - we Lutherans see things differently!
And don't even get me started at how this image of a virgin mother totally messed up expectations of being the perfect woman.
