Mother’s Day Reflection by Rev. Nancy
This Mother’s Day take a moment to think of all the mothers in the world who are in need. There are millions of women in the world living on less than a dollar a day. There are women in this country who are wondering how they are going to feed or diaper their children from day to day. There are children who need medical attention that their parents may not be able to afford.
Anyone who has ever had to worry about such things can deeply sympathize. For those of us who have escaped such worries, we can only imagine the stress that such uncertainties can cause.
This Mother’s Day think of all of these women, and also think of your own mother, grandmother, or aunt. How might you honor her this Mother’s Day?
I have some suggestions to offer:
- How about dropping off a box of diapers and/or a some baby food at the Germantown Avenue Crisis Ministry.
- Make a donation to St. Catherine Laboure Medical Clinic right here in Germantown where medical care is given to those who for whatever reason do not have insurance.
- Offer prayers of thanksgiving and support for doctors like Liz Drum who volunteer in clinics around the world?
There are other ways to help support mothers locally and globally, while at the same time honoring your own mother or care giver. And sure, you can still give her some flowers and candy!
Happy Mother’s Day to one and all!
See you in Church,
