Sign up now for the Women's Retreat and get away from the busyness of life for a weekend of relaxation and restoration at Pilgrim Pines in Swanzey, NH.
In Luke 10:38-42, the story of Martha and Mary, Mary spent time at the feet of Jesus listening to all that he had to say. Martha on the other hand, was distracted by all the preparations that needed to be made. Even though her intentions were good, she was distracted from listening to and experiencing the living incarnate word of God up close and personal. But take notice that she comes to Jesus, not anyone else, with her frustrations and anxieties. And Jesus could have easily rebuked her for getting upset with Mary or demanding things of Him but instead, he acknowledges what she's feeling and gently reminds her of the only necessary thing, that is, Himself.
In the business of our lives, we often are distracted from taking the time to listen to and commune with Jesus even if everything we're trying to do and prepare is for his sake. Sacred Space is a time dedicated to sitting at the feet of Jesus, enjoying his presence, bringing any anxieties, worries, frustrations, etc. before him and listening to what he has to say. Join us as we begin every month spending time listening to God in prayer.
