Jo White spoke about “Spiritual Mothers” on Mother’s Day. Naomi could be described as a spiritual matriarch, starting with her care for Ruth. Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, was spiritually mothering to her younger cousin Mary. Jo’s own Mrs. Fitness demonstrated the power of generosity and hospitality in small spaces. At any age we are all in need of encouragement from spiritual parents to help us grow in our knowledge of the love of Christ. [KH]
