Radical Roots of Mother’s Day

led by Phyllis Samara

This week’s service will visit radical mothers in history and today. There will be a re-enacting of the story of the Mother’s Day Proclamation given by Julia Ward Howe in 1870, and mothers telling their stories. No two mothers’ stories are the same; we’ll reflect on the diversity of mothers, the capacity of mothering relationships, and the importance of our relationships with mother figures and how it impacts our decision to mother.
