Magnify the Lord: Words by Pastor Katy Stenta

(Hope)  Jeremiah 33:14- 18,

The time is surely coming Refuge and Salvation

The Jesse, the Jesse branch will spring up from David

Justice and Righteousness

Will be the spice of worship

We hope for God’s Justice (x3) Magnify the Lord

(Love) Isaiah 40: 1-11

Comfort, O my people

with songs and preparation

A voice, a voice cries out in wil-il-der-ness

Cry Out and Stand Firm

God’s Word never withers

We wait as God’s beloved (3x); Magnify the Lord

(Joy) Ezra 1:1-4; 3:1-4, 10-13

Rebuild the Temple

Built with ex-alt-ta-tions

For God, is good an’ just, an’ loves us forev’r

Shout with Rejoicing           

Come let’s praise our Savior

We practice our rejoicing (3x); Magnify the Lord

(Peace) Luke 1:5-13 [14-25], 27-80,

Peace Seed, we await thee

Mighty and Graceful  

Deliver, deliver us; Jesus, Messiah

Come strengthen justice       

Fill the world with mercy

Create the earth’s-Shalom (x3); Magnify the Lord

Pastor Katy has enjoyed ministry at New Covenant for 7 years, where the church has solidified its community focus. Prior to that she studied both Theology and Christian Formation at Princeton Theological Seminary. She also served as an Assistant Chaplain at Trenton Psychiatric Hospital and as the Christian Educational Coordinator at Bethany Presbyterian at Bloomfield, NJ. She enjoys working within and connecting to the community, is known to laugh a lot during service, and tells as many stories as possible. Pastor Katy loves reading Science Fiction and Fantasy, theater, arts and crafts, music, playing with children and sunshine, and continues to try to be as (w)holistically Christian as possible. "Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal. Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one.[66] Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.
