Full to the Brim: Under God’s Wing

Luke 13:31-35, NRSV


To be a Mother is to weep
over the fighting and exclusions and wounds
your children inflict on one another;
To long for reconciliation and brotherly love
and—when all is said and done—
To gather all parties, the offender and the offended,
into the folds of your embrace
and to whisper in their ears
that they are Beloved.

— Allison Woodard, God Our Mother

  • Mother’s love is transformative
  • Mother’s love is not afraid of getting dirty
  • Mother’s love is fierce
  • Sometimes we are not ready to receive the love all the time
  • Sometimes we doubt mother’s love is enough for all children
