Missing from my congregation yesterday: three mothers whose children died in adulthood; two women who never had children. Is this a coincidence?
I never do a Mothers' Day sermon. And it was Pentecost.
I told the Minister of Music that I didn't do Mothers' Day and the reasons. So, she does a sappy anthem about mothers. Ugh. She doesn't have time to meet with me. (And besides, I'm not doing much other than putting together a liturgy and sermon each week.)
