Remembering Susanna Wesley on Mothers' Day

Mother's Day is not a part of the Christian Calendar.  For those of us who are liturgically minded, it likely doesn't play a large role in our planning of worship.  For many Christian churches, however, it is a part of their "liturgical calendar."  Whether it plays a big role in your worship gathering or not, the celebration of Mothers' Day can be (ought to be) very important.

A friend of mine, Keith Kiper from The Circuit Rider blog, emailed a link to an article about Susanna Wesley, the mother of John & Charles Wesley, and, thus, the mother of Methodism.  The article was written by Anne Adams, who is currently on staff at St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas.  The article can be read at the Indiana South Wesleyan Life blogspot, which serves the Indiana South District of The Wesleyan Church.  -  I thought the article may be of interest to some of the readers of this blog.
