It’s not Martha OR Mary, it’s Martha AND Mary. Really.
Don’t we all have parts that are Martha and parts that are Mary—Martha the vigilant action-taker and Mary the still and dedicated listener?
One and the Other. Mary and Martha, reconciled in the shared act of hospitality. Radical.
Radical hospitality. The beginning of Justice.
