American Minute – Mothers Day

PA Pundits - International

From William J Federer’s American Minute ~

Mothers’ Day was held in Boston in 1872 at the suggestion of Julia Ward Howe, writer of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

But it was Anna Jarvis, daughter of a Methodist minister in Grafton, West Virginia, who made it a national event. During the Civil War, Anna Jarvis’ mother organized Mothers’ Day Work Clubs to care for wounded soldiers, both Union and Confederate. She raised money for medicine, inspected bottled milk, improved sanitation and hired women to care for families where mothers suffered from tuberculosis. In her mother’s honor, Anna Jarvis persuaded her church to set aside the 2nd Sunday in May, the anniversary of her mother’s death, as a day to appreciate all mothers.

Encouraged by the reception, Anna Jarvis organized it in Philadelphia, then began a letter-writing campaign to ministers, businessmen and politicians to establish a national Mothers’ Day. In…

The Dynamics of Discipleship


Luke 14:26-27

In examining the New Testament standard for discipleship, it would appear that Jesus had many believers and followers, but few disciples. Luke 14:25-33 records three principles of discipleship given by Jesus.

First, there can be no rival in the life of the disciple: “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sister—yes, even his own life—he cannot be My disciple” (Luke 14:26). Such a statement sounds strange especially to those of us who come from close families. But what Jesus is stating is that our love for Him must be supreme and all other loves secondary. We have a divine paradox here, for when we love Christ to this degree, we love father, mother, wife and children even more.

We must recognize that Jesus holds one of three places in the life of every believer. He…
