Are you a Martha or a Mary? One of my favourite stories of Jesus is that of Mary and Martha. It has also been coming up in daily readings and talks for the past week.
Have you ever caught yourself questioning what you are meant to do in your life? What career is best, who you will marry, where you’re going to live?
