The Church is Our Mother?

Cyprian of Carthage once wrote, "No one can have God for his Father who does not have the Church for his mother." Ever think of the church as being our mother? And here's another question we pondered on this Mother's Day (that was also Ascension Sunday): To whom did Jesus leave the gift of the Holy Spirit? Join Pastor Chris as he talks about the ways the church is, indeed, our mother-- and he recalls some tender (and funny) moments from childhood courtesy of his mom.
