Mothering Sunday in the UK always presents a challenge in crafting worship, unless one ignores it completely. This morning, the Lectionary reading - the parable of the Prodigal, brought a real sense of homecoming. It was also our Stated Annual Meeting, so we celebrated in worship our life together serving at the heart of our community and parish. All of these elements combined, hopefully, to foster the sense of all who were there having a unique place in the family of God - and of each one needed to make that family complete. There was a blizzard raging outside during worship but, like hardy snowdrops, God's people emerged just as the sun re-appeared and forged on to share hope and love.
