The Mother in Me
Anita "Ruby" Jones

Exploring and sharing stories about my matrilineal line, I will reveal the characteristics and traits that have become inextricably woven into the Mother that I am.
BEFORE CHURCH: You are invited to meet at church at 8:00AM and join our walk to Grand Circus Park. There, we will gather on the east side surrounding the bronze statue redubbed "Ikwe Michigamma" (Woman of the Great Waters). We will offer prayers, songs and intentions to bring justice, compassion, equity and peace into the affairs of our social, political, economic and spiritual institutions. We will return to First UU for a special Mother's Day service at 11:00 AM.
