C34: The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (2019)

Judy Kincaid

What would you do if Jesus Christ came to your house for dinner? Judy Kincaid, winner of our 2020 Pentecost Preaching Contest, preaches a sermon on Luke 10:38-42, the beloved story of Mary and Martha. Kincaid asks, “Is it a badge of honor to have something to do all the time? Does it make us feel important?” Then she quotes Henry David Thoreau. “It’s not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is, ‘What are we busy about?'” Listen as Kincaid explains how to overcome our anxious busyness by choosing, as Mary did, “the better part.”
