You don’t have to be a mother to celebrate and recognize Mother’s Day. All have a mother even though she may not have ever been involved or not now in your family picture, but if you are alive you have a mother to thank for at least carrying you to birth.
However, I do know that sometimes ladies prefer to avoid church on Mother’s Day out of fear of being singled out for not having children or being reminded of a child’s passing or because of struggles in parenting or just out of a want to avoid being asked about whatever uncomfortable family circumstance they’re dealing with.
On Sunday, May 8 at CrossHope Chapel we will have our usual “First Sunday” format (even though it’s the second Sunday of the month) with a special potluck that will follow a brief time of worship with a devotional thought and communion.
I plan on sharing some insights from the Bible that will uplift and bring encouragement to any heart, male or female, parent or not.
The potluck will be “special” because the men are supplying the food so our ladies don’t have to, and yes I realize that we may be taking a big risk here, but I will be bringing some pulled pork from Dickey’s BBQ and some chicken salad from Chicken Salad Chicks.
Having said this, men, if you want to grab something from the store or ladies, if you want to hand your man some type of sides or desserts, that will help!
