First Parish in Wayland: “The Mother’s Journey”

Joseph Campbell spoke extensively about what he called the “hero’s journey.” Today we pause to appreciate the very unique and powerful journey of those who take up the journey of mothering. In all its many forms, to care for and be responsible for another being is a profound charge. Whether or not we feel we have been successful, and whether or not we feel our own mother’s have done their best, it is a journey that few would deny is indeed heroic. Let’s celebrate the “mother’s journey” together on May 12 at 10 a.m. The service will be led by the Rev. Deborah Bennett.
