If Jesus came to your home, might you be more like Mary, wanting to sit at Jesus' feet and soak up all he had to teach, or Martha, wanting to get have everything just right, so being a worthy host of Jesus? Which was the better way? Our worship today, 26 minutes long, looks at this issue in the days of Mary and Martha, and in our times today. Our text comes from Luke 10:38-42, and we are honored to have guest preacher Rev. Dean Phelps bringing our sermon.
As we do each week, our closing moments together include a time of communion (breaking of the bread). We invite you to participate if you would like with some type of actual bread and drink you supply, or these elements held in your mind. You may also meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me." All are welcome at our table.
