Year C – Mary and Martha

stop the glorification of busy

This is a good reminder that ‘being’ and ‘doing’ are essential one to the other, not at the expense of the other. May be a good lens to reflect on the text this work for Mary and Martha.

Thoughtful post c/- Sojourners: ‘Mary and Martha, Use your gifts, whatever they may be

God of calm,
God of action,
God of calm action,
you ask us to sit at the feet of your son.
You ask us not to fret in the kitchen.
Teach us contemplation in a world of action,
calm in the kitchen,
stirred at the Lord’s feet.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.  Amen           (Bob Eldan)
