ANGLICAN BOARD OF MISSION (ABM) PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday 17 July 2022
In the gospel today we read of Jesus visiting his friends, Martha and Mary. Martha is the ever-practical and ever-busy sister. She makes a good representative for us, with all the busyness that characterises our lives. Jesus tells her to follow her sister’s example – that is, to be more focused on the moment and not to neglect things that are more contemplative and less active.
- Jesus Christ, you are the focus of our prayer. Help us to rid our lives of unnecessary hustle and bustle so that we have time for contemplation, time just to experience the moments you give us, and the experience of being with you in prayer.
