A Note from Pastor Kevin

posted Apr 27, 2020, 6:18 PM by Bowmansville UMC

May is the month that we celebrate mothers everywhere. I would like to talk about the Mother Mary. We in the Methodist religion don’t celebrate the Mother Mary like the Catholic Church. Mary, the mother of Jesus, commonly referred to as Mary, Mother of God, Saint Mary and Blessed Virgin Mary, is one of the most admired figures in Scripture and considered by many to be the greatest of all Christian saints. She was a willing servant who trusted God and obeyed His call. While her life held great honor, her calling also required great suffering. Though there was joy in motherhood, there was great pain in the privilege of being the mother of the Messiah. Despite these things, she responded to God with great obedience and submission to His plan. Her life never robbed Jesus of His glory, for his mission was to witness the glory of the Son of God. This month when we celebrate Mother’s Day, let’s remember Jesus’ Mother along with all of the mothers  since then who have shaped us from the time we were born.
