This Sunday the Church celebrates Mothers’ Day. It is a time we give thanks for our own mums.
But this year, more than ever, I want to remember those who are missing their mums through bereavement. Also those who never knew the love of a mother. That they would come to know the amazing love of God that is even greater than the love of a parent. “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)Real love? God loved you so much He thought that you were worth dying for. Reverend Captain Tim Stanford, St John’s Church. Worksop.
