Yesterday was a special day as we acknowledged and celebrated the influence and love of mothers and mother figures in our lives. We recognized that Mother’s Day can evoke a range of emotions, from gratitude and joy to loss and pain.
We honored not only the mothers who are with us but also those who have passed on, and we extended our support to those who long to be mothers or have faced challenges in their journey of motherhood.
As we worshipped together, we embraced the diversity of our stories and experiences, and were united in love, compassion, and understanding. Happy Mother’s Day to all, and may we all continue to both celebrate as well as find strength and support in this loving congregation!
