Historically Mother’s Day as we know it has not been around very long, about 100 years or so. Mothering Sunday does have a longer history but it too does not date back very far.
Rather than let Mother's day take precedence in worship I am setting aside a time in worship this week for a Mother's Reflection (in place of the Children's Address). I am going to ask questions of Mother's of different geenrations and compare some of the changes. This will link with the sermon I am praching about "Singing a new song".
