Mothering Sunday

Sunday 10th March 2013
On the road from Elsdon to Otterburn
Not many people came to the Mothering Sunday service at Bellingham.  They seem to have been caught up in the commercialism of the American "Mothers' Day", not realising that the origin of Mothering Sunday was young people being given mid-Lent Sunday off to go and visit Mother Church  --  and on the way home picking wild flowers to give to their own mothers.
     So as we thank God for all the blessings of this life (including our mothers and all those people who care for us) we present posies of flowers to those who come to church.
