FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle Reader,

Mother's Day is this Sunday. It's a day of celebrating those we call "Mom" and the essential work they did in making us who we are over countless hours and unknown sacrifices.  It's a day on which we mourn - the passing of those who have mothered us, the mothering relationships we never could have, the ways in which our society puts motherhood on a pedestal, even as it does painfully little to support and nourish actual women struggling to fulfill the actual demands of being actual mothers.  

It's a day in which we invite God - to join us in our rejoicing and our weeping, to meet us in the beauty and brokenness of some of our closest relationships, to plant Her love, joy, and peace in our stories so that, whatever has been, we may have encouragement, compassion and hope for the road ahead. It's no small order, but God is up to the task. Come this Sunday and hear God's mothering word to you.  It may just change your life!
