Mothers Provided Breakfast on Mother’s Day!

The world is upside down! Why did the mothers provide breakfast on Mother’s Day? Well, sometimes it is that way when constituencies and demographics shift and there is no men’s group available to do the job. Confronted with this reality, it is remarkable, however, that the old custom and its relationship-building potential were more important to our church family than the insistence on who should have done what. Our women are remarkably selfless! They extended the hand of hospitality simply because that’s what was needed, even if this ran counter traditional roles. See the accompanying pictures as a sign of what their generosity achieved.
