Song of Praise - "Here and Now"
When your faith in perfect love
Can’t explain the pain that you feel,
You will find you’ve looked for a sign up above
But he was there in the dirt where you stood
And there's hope found
Here and now, here within the real
In the midst of all we’ve done
All we’ve given up on
He was with us every step
Feeling what we feel
When your soul was buried down
Burden by the long road
And in time we will learn to grow
Through and pain and into hope
For the storms they come
And swallow up the sun
But the light lives on and on
Scripture Reading - Luke 10:38-42
38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus[a] entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary.[b] Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

Big Questions with Cleo - Why Does Martha Get in Trouble?
Cleo's Question: What is a way you spend time with God together as a family?
Sermon - Making Margin
Do you relate to the Cruella de Vil meme? How do you feel when you’re busy beyond all reason? How about when you don’t get a lot done?
To all baptized, believing Christians, the Father says, “You are my son/daughter and with you I am well pleased.” How might this truth affect your sense of worth and “enoughness”? What hinders you from fully believing this?
What is one spiritual discipline you could adopt that would help you spend more time with Jesus? What is one step you could take this week to make that happen?
The Sermon Prayer: Pray for stronger desire to spend time with God and for grace to grow in your relationship with the Triune God.
