Wanted: Mother’s Day/Christian Family Sunday Hymn Reflections

“My child… do not forsake your mother’s teaching. Bind them upon your heart always; tie them around your neck.” (Proverbs 6:20-21)

Once again, we find ourselves in the midst of a lockdown, missing our families and communities of faith. We also find ourselves continuing to miss the opportunity to sing together in person. Our memories of music can often be some of our strongest, fostering feelings of connection and care.

With this in mind, and with the positive response from our Hymn Sing service in February, we will be having another pre-recorded hymn sing service for Mother’s Day/Christian Family Sunday on May 9th! This will be an opportunity to give thanks to the mother figures in our midst, and reflect on how music and faith have shaped our lives as families and congregations.

Once again, we want to hear from you! We are looking for hymn suggestions that remind you of your families and/or mother figures. We also want some reflections on how mother figures have shaped you and your life of faith. This isn’t limited to your own mother; you can offer reflections on other strong female role models in your family, in the congregation, or in the community.

You can submit your hymn suggestions and reflections to Alex or our music directors (Glenda Morrison, Katie Dockstader, Marilyn Scott). Reach out to any one of us, email us, or send a message to our Facebook page. Those offering brief reflections on what music or a particular song meant to them are welcome to record themselves, or it can be read on their behalf in our service. You can reach Alex by email at minister.brusselsandblythuc@gmail.com, or leave a message at either church office. Please send your suggestions and reflections by May 2nd.

We look forward to sharing in the ministry of music and the memories of strong family role models past and present. Blessings to you all this Easter season!
