Reconciling Mary and Martha

On this one-day retreat, we will enter into the Biblical accounts of Mary and Martha. Traditionally, interpretation of these stories has opposed contemplative and active lives. For those of us who live primarily in a world of activity, this can be discouraging if we think our gifts are not worthy. Since most of us are part Martha and part Mary, we need to integrate aspects of faith and action, while bringing our gifts more fully into the service of Christ. (Please note: The retreat center is on Eastern Time)

Presenter: Barbara Golder is a physician, bioethicist, attorney and award-winning author of mystery stories. She has served on the National Advisory Council of the USCCB and is presently the editor for the Catholic medical journal, The Linacre Quarterly.
