As we celebrate and honor our mothers today, let us also recognize the burdens they traverse, too. In this sermon, we take a look at the other side of motherhood, from the perspective of our Christ's mother Mary, and the burden of what it might have been like to lose a child. This also pushes us to the present-day reality of a woman named Wanda Cooper, who deals with the horror of losing her child - Ahmaud Arbery. (Please forgive me for mispronouncing Ahmaud's name during the sermon.)
To all the women who are birthed into and fall into the role of mother, know that you are loved and valued completely.
