Ephesians 3 14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. 16I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, 17and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. 18I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.
‘M is for the many mother-figures in our lives’ So – on this Mother’s Day, let us honour them – whoever they are – past or present, in memory or in person, biological or spiritual. And in doing so, honour the God who creates us to be in relationship with one another – caring, loving and nurturing the people who bless our lives, and celebrating the deep bonds of love that connect us heart to heart. Amen – so may it be.
