We are now in the third week of our current sermon series, “Ask Me Anything”, and as I add, “theologically!” Over the past couple of weeks, we have been responding to some of the questions that you requested us respond to as we grapple with faith and the deeper questions that we may have pondered.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day and the question that we ponder is “Was Jesus Married?” I am eager to tackle this question, especially considering the Scripture that has been selected for this Sunday. Over this past week there has been a lot to process, specifically in relation to the unrest in our country and in our world.
The leaked opinion of a potential reversal of Roe vs. Wade and the domino effect that this opens, affecting minority groups and legal protections. It is another time in our movement to remain vigilant and activated and I want to assure you that we will do everything we can, in response to our faith, to protect the most vulnerable in our community and in our world. Jesus speaks of his mother often and we see her at many significant moments in Jesus’ life.
As we gather on Sunday, we too will honor those who have been “mothers” to us. Some will have been biological and others who have stepped in and been “mothers” toward us. I look forward to sharing worship this Sunday as we gather in person and online to respond to this question and the many other questions that we face in today’s world.
We are better, together.
