Full service with sermon – Is not his mother called Mary?
This Mothering Sunday, without the opportunity to gather as families makes it all the more important to remember mums, and indeed dads, whose children have pre-deceased them, particularly a number within and connected to our church family. Please remember them in your prayers and we will be praying for them in our prayer time later in the service. Remember too those who are just missing mum!
We begin our worship with our weekly music group ensemble which reminds us of the deep, deep love of Jesus. I’ll open in prayer then I invite you to sing along wherever you happen to be joining in our service.
Prayer: O the deep, deep love of Jesus; vast unmeasured, boundless, free; rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me. Loving Lord, we give all of our attention to worship you today while we reflect on the self-giving love of mothers, particularly Mary, your mum. Help us to love you in a way that approaches her love for you, we pray for your name’s sake, Amen.
