C34: The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (2016)

Jim Somerville

If you saw the sermon title “The Worst Church Member Ever” on the marquee, would you come to church expecting an awards ceremony of some kind? Would you come to find out who “won”? Would you come to make sure you didn’t get the award yourself? Dr. Jim Somerville, Pastor of Richmond’s First Baptist Church and Co-Founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday, preaches a sermon from Luke 10:38-42 on the story of Mary and Martha. Which one is the “good member” and which one is the “worst member”? Listen as Somerville explains that what mattered in the end was not what Mary and Martha did, but what choices they made.
