Happy Mother's Day! - Our Mother's Remind Us of God

Dear Members & Friends of
First Congregational
United Church of Christ:

I just wanted to wish all
of our mothers and those
who serve in the role
of a mother, a very happy
Mother's Day!

Most of what I know about
God and faith in Jesus Christ
came from my mother. She would
read Bible stories from the
Children's Bible and take us
to church and Sunday School
almost every Sunday.

So, for my siblings and me,
we learned and experienced
things spiritual, quite literally,
at our mother's side.

In the Bible, the prophet Isaiah
pictures God's relationship with
Israel being like that of a mother
and her child. Isaiah writes,
"Can a woman forget her nursing
child, or show no compassion for
the child of her womb? As a mother
comforts her child, so I will comfort you;
you shall be comforted in Jerusalem"
(Isaiah 49:15a; 66:13).

So the next time you think of your
mother, think of God embracing you
and holding you as continue on
life's journey.

Again, Happy Mother's Day & Blessings,

Pastor Greg Rupright
