A brass sculpture -- formed like a line drawing -- in the shape of a heart. The curves and twists of this "line" appear to be three abstract people -- an abstract representation of a family.

On this Mother’s Day, let’s look at the stories we tell ourselves about what parenting should look like—now and in decades past. What myths are we carrying about mothering, and what plotline best captures our own experience? How do these stories revolutionize how we see ourselves?

Worship Associate Joyce Miller reflects on her days as an emerging feminist and young mother, and wonders whether her children remember the stories the same way she does.

Whether we are parents or not, let’s all look at the way no story ever really fits the stereotype of what a role should be. What’s liberating about claiming our stories as they truly are? How do we grow when we hear each other’s stories?

We’ll share our Joys and Sorrows on this Sunday, too. And our Special Collection will go to Third Street Community Center.
