Happy Mother’s Day! Today our service is for all people, not just mothers, but it also gives some special honor to parents of all kinds. We need that right now, don’t we? We may not be able to gather with families today as we might have otherwise, but we can connect here with our church family, and with the God who parents us through every challenge in life. Worship him today… sing along, or just listen and meditate, as the worship team leads us in remembering who God is and what God is doing. Then watch the video titled “Mother’s Day Blessings“, before turning to the message

We also have a few extra goodies for you today! 

  • Under Additional Resources, you’ll find another video, titled “Hope is Here”, that anyone is welcome to enjoy. If you’re doing Tony’s class on I Peter, you might find that particularly helpful. You’ll also be able to download the blessing that Tony shared at the end of the video for “all kinds of parents everywhere.” Feel free to download it for your own use, or to share with someone else. 
  • You can sign up here for Tony’s class (even at the last minute!), which is titled “Hope in Hard Times.” It’s a Bible study of I Peter.
  • The text of the message is also below, in case you prefer to read it, or want to pass it along to someone else.

Tony ends the year, the decade, and our year-long series on the seasons of faith by looking at one last paradox: The struggle between wanting to DO something, and just learning to BE.
