Sunday, May 11 — Mother’s Day

Just a reminder that after two weeks at the Sedona Creative Life Center, we are back at the library this Sunday….

9:30 a.m., Community Room at Sedona Public Library

Fellowship time after the Gathering will be at Red’s Restaurant, at Sedona Rouge.

Mothers Day.  Mothers everywhere are honored and blessed for the role they have played in our lives.  We will do no less at Sedona Interfaith Fellowship this Sunday.  But we will also take a closer look at what the definition of “mother” is from a spiritual perspective.  What about this role is unique?  How do all of us play this role, regardless of our gender or even age, at one time or another?  What is God’s purpose for mothers? And how is God a mother to us?

The story we’ll use to illustrate the answers to some of these questions is a parable of sorts, that describes the sacred trust a mother is given by God.  We’ll take a step back, to get a perspective on what our function is as mother and caregiver to all.  It helps to also know that any lack of perfection in this role does not affect how God sees us, as blessed and whole, as a part of Her, and full of potential.

Drawing from Jesus scholar Marcus Borg’s book, Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, we’ll glean some insights into the concept of “womb” and “compassion,” as understood in the context of the Hebrew Bible.

Come share some sacred time and space with other seekers! We’d love to see you!
