The Way?Pastor Alisa Lasater Wailoo, May 14, 2017
Part of the Mothers' Day 2017 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
On this Sunday, many in our country and around the world will celebrate Mother’s Day. Others will bemoan it. In our denomination, although it’s not an official church holiday, it’s roots are in the church. Sadly, just a few years after the holiday began, the founder, Anna Jarvis, thought that we'd lost our way or at least lost sight of the original purpose and intention of the day.
As our mothers and mothering figures know, we can all lose our way. Check out the Acts passage for this sermon and imagine what Stephen's mom might be thinking and feeling? What about Saul’s mama? One has been silently serving and the other loudly preaching; but who is following the Way Jesus describes in our Gospel lesson? And how do we find "the way?" (By the way, is there only one way? We'll be considering that in the sermon as well).
So come to this sermon to celebrate God's love in our midst, the ways God's love leads us, and all who reflect God's way, truth, and light.
