Ready, Steady, Go …

Mothering Sunday was a busy day in St Andrew’s in Tain.  Being the fifth Sunday of the month, it was a joint service with the congregation of St Finnbarr’s in Dornoch joining the congregation of St Andrew’s for the 11 o’clock Eucharist.  It was also the latest in our ‘Bring a Friend to Church‘ services when we extend a particular welcome to friends and family of regular church-goers.

It was a lovely occasion, which acknowledged both the joys and heartache of motherhood, the fact that we are all children, both of Mothers and of God and the pain that each of us feels when eventually our Mothers are no longer with us.  Posies of daffodils were lovingly made by the Tain Guides and Blessed before being distributed to the whole congregation, with the posies left over being taken for friends and neighbours.

The Sunday which marks the mid-point of our Lenten Journey is sometime referred to as ‘Refreshment Sunday‘ and that was very much in our minds after the service as a splendid spread in the hall provided the opportunity for refreshment and fellowship as is fitting when hospitality is extended to those beyond our regular fellowship.
