              The theme of this reflection is “Mothering, Received and Given,” and it was given by Marcia Kirkpatrick. On this day we remember with thanksgiving all those whose lives have nurtured us, and we also remember with gratitude the opportunities we have had in turn to nurture others. We honor mothers and also all the others whose gifts of love and attention helped us–and other children–grow in body and spirit.

                      The title of this sermon is "We Are Loved," and it is given by Rev. Russ Savage. The Christian tradition offers many valuable lessons about how we should treat our fellow human beings and why. Near the end of his life, Jesus speaks powerfully about this in ways that remain valuable today. Rev. Russ Savage first delivered this sermon at a community Lenten service last month, and it was suggested that it was offered to UUBRidge as well.
