October 1, 2017 — Christ United Methodist Church, Bethel Park

We are a “Martha, Martha” society and people, a nation in crisis of choosing the urgent and expedient or what’s truly important. Closing our series I Choose we look at the story of Mary & Martha in Luke 10:38-42. This story, in conjunction with the story of the Good Samaritan, asks the vital question of us, “Do we make room for the Jesus in front of us?”
