Today, during prayers in worship, a member prayed for all mothers, especially those suffering. He mentioned that Friday was Mother’s Day in Mexico (it’s always on May 10), and that Sunday was Mother’s Day in the United States. I thought about that during the rest of worship, especially during communion. I couldn’t remember when Mother’s Day was on Friday and Sunday. During the announcements, I commented on that, and asked where Mother’s Day was on Saturday? I shared that I thought it was at the border between the two countries. Where mothers are desperately trying to cross to a place of safety, in order to protect their children. I don’t know if Mother’s Day was celebrated at the border on Saturday, or not. But I’m pretty sure our Mothering God was there.
Let us be at the border.
