Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Pentecost 6 – When Jesus and the disciples were made welcome at the home of two sisters, one of the sisters, Mary, sat listening to Jesus and enjoying his company, while the other sister, Martha, was annoyed at being left with all the cooking and cleaning and serving – the culturally appropriate tasks for a woman caring for guests. When she asked Jesus to intervene on her behalf, he told her that she was tearing herself apart with worry, and that Mary's choice of listening to what he had to say was far more fruitful in the circumstances.. Hearing and doing go together, and we must learn to balance activism with devotion. Learn when to be still, to hear the words and music of the grace that makes us whole.
Luke 10: 38-42
