Planning worship for a long weekend can be difficult. We are often limited by the reduced availability of volunteers, and we can become discouraged or distracted by the anticipated lower attendance. However, how we approach these weekends reveals our true beliefs about worship.

As we approach Mothers Day, it is important that we in the church honor all the moms—not just the traditional picture of motherhood we are used to.
