Promoting the Great and General Interests of Peace

On the National Network of Presbyterian Women’s blog, Noelle Gulden has posted Julia Ward Howe’s 1870 call to celebrate Mother’s Day. Howe envisioned a day when women would remember the lives lost in war and hold a gathering dedicated to promoting "the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace."

Happy Mother’s Day!
