What's in a name?

When Jesus and his disciples were in the neighborhood of Bethany they stayed with good friends; Martha, Mary and Lazarus. Martha was a "doer" - a real gift of hospitality and caretaking. Mary was more contemplative.
While Martha was busy preparing food and making sure guests were attended to, Mary was seated at Jesus' feet. Martha was frustrated at her sister's lack of help and yet, Jesus tells her Mary has made the right choice to sit and listen. Luke 10:38-42
It's a story of finding balance - which is sometimes difficult in today's world. It is important and vital to be God's hands in the world, but it is even more important to spend time in prayer and conversation with Jesus and studying the Word so we learn - to be grounded in our faith so we can share that joy with others we meet.
Here at M&M, we strive for a happy balance of both - active in social ministry opportunities like Feed My Starving Children, PADS & medical ission trips to Bible studies & inspiring, meaningful worship experiences. Check us out!
