Leaders as Mother's 

Pastors and church leaders are mothers, because our labor has everything to do with creating space for new life to happen, creating space for the gift of life, for people to be reborn into the God of life.

Talking About Adoption

But it's better for churches to include adoption and related issues in baptisms, worship, and church life. A feature story exploring the case for talking about adoption in worship. [More].

Creative Imagination

"I used to feel (the standard complaint) that Mother’s Day was too prescriptive or idealized motherhood unrealistically.  But you asked what it’s missing, rather than what it has too much of.  I miss the same thing I generally miss at church (although we have a few exceptions in my ward and stake).  I miss spiritual imagination.  I miss vision.  I miss both the celebration of our understanding of the eternities and the creative imagination of how our deep identities might be reflected in our lives and how we conceive of them.  I miss hearing new songs or even new verses to old songs (metaphorically speaking)." - Jana Riess [New song].

Infertility Issues

Johnson, 36, a researcher at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, said people she has surveyed from a range of faiths report hearing this kind of advice: “You just have to let go and let God.” “Have you prayed about it?” “You just have to believe.” Across the board, this prompted infertile women to shy away from sharing their circumstances.
