A community remembrance service in advance of Mother’s Day for anyone who experiences loss at this time of year. A time to reflect and remember in the company of friends. Bring a small unframed photograph of someone you want to remember for our altar. (It can be retrieved after the event.) Everyone is welcome.
Mother’s Day 2018
by Joanna Manning
Mother’s Day 2018 finds me in a militant state of mind. And if we go back to the origins of the celebration, that’s actually very appropriate frame of mind to be in.
As you may know, Mother’s Day began not as a celebration of a woman’s personal devotion to her family but as a holiday that commemorated and fostered women’s civic and international activism.
