The Universal Mother

The Universal Mother

It’s Mother’s Day, and we want to celebrate all Mothers in our Unity community. Around 1870, Julia Ward Howe called for a “Mother’s Day for Peace” dedicated to celebrating peace and eradicating war. As expressed in her “Mother’s Day Proclamation” from 1870, Howe felt that mothers should gather to prevent the cruelty of war and the waste of life since mothers of mankind alone bear and know the cost. This was one of the little-known ideas that sparked the beginning of Mother’s Day.

In this lesson, we share about the importance of the Mother energy that enfolds us all. No one person can hold all of the qualities that are needed to care for the whole of creation. It is a collective experience, a shared responsibility that we all are all a part of. The nurturing must come from each one of us.

 “The Jerusalem that is above brings freedom and is the Mother of us all” 

Galatians 4:26 

“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all” 

Proverbs 31:28-31
