Tomorrow being the fourth Sunday in Lent is Mothering Sunday. Although, nowadays, it is the day we associate with thanking those who have been a mother to us the festival originally began as a thanksgiving for 'Holy Mother Church'. At the service tomorrow at 10am everyone present at the Good Shepherd will be given flowers as a symbol of Christian love between all members of the church. Flowers will also be taken to the two nursing homes in the afternoon when the Rector conducts their monthly evensong services.
Mothering Sunday is a joyful celebration for many but please remember those for whom tomorrow is a painful day.
God our Father,
(from the Mothers' Union)
