Today is Mother’s Day.  Grace and peace to all the moms.  Today is also the 6th Sunday of Easter.  I was reflecting on the relationship of women to Easter.  It was the women who first went to the tomb–not the men.  It was the women who first met Jesus–not the men.  It was the women who were first instructed to take the news of the resurrection to the disciples–not the men.  Without the women, there would be no announcement of resurrection hope.  So, why has the church historically silenced the women?  Forgive us.  Today, we’re honoring not only the women who bear children, but all women who bear good news of hope and faith.  Thank you for your faithful proclamation by word and action.
