It is for me. I managed to avoid preaching on Mother’s Day for several years until this year. This link will take you to the video of what I had to say. Maybe the day would be better served if we made it about children of mothers and listened to Small Voices.
Pastor. Parent. Activist.

This sermon touched my heart. I loved the phrase “the child he was holding wasn’t his.” It was very powerful.
Thank you for this inclusive, thorough and relevant sermon. I listened to it on Monday night May 15.
