6th Sunday in Easter

Mother’s Day

A Scripture Medley

Hosea 11:1-4
“…I led them with cords of kindness, with bands of love…”

Matthew 23:37
“…often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings…”

Isaiah 66:13
“As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you…”

Isaiah 49:15
“Can a woman forget her nursing child…”

I Thessalonians 2:7
“But we were gentle among you, like a nursing mother taking care of her own children.”

Galatians 4:19
“My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth…”

Take a look in your own Bible – we know you’ll find more references to the Mother. There is, after all, Mary. There is Mary’s cousin, Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist. Remember the mother who conspires with Pharaoh’s daughter to save baby Moses? And Hannah, the mother of Samuel…

With all this in mind, we think of our own mothers and mother figures. Bring a memento to show us as we Zoom. Share a vignette. Recount a moment…

Rev. Carl Van Osdall will lead us at 4 P.M. Join in for Joys and Concerns and Communion. Tom Jones will play Mother’s Day music. Find Zoom links in your Sunday morning email.
