MOTHERING SUNDAY is next Sunday, March 10, the Sunday after next, and we are celebrating at Seal at our 10 am Communion service, with posies for children to give to their mothers or carers. Motherhood is a tough job - and we'll not only be giving thanks for (and to) those who mother us, but also thinking of mothers around the world who mother against the odds and who are supported by the work of Christian Aid.
There's a lovely meditative slideshow about them, with a beautiful poem about the way God is mother to us, here.
There will be a cake stall after church on Mothering Sunday, in aid of church funds. If you would like to contribute some baking to help us raise funds, please let me know - or you can contribute by buying something!
