The Life Journey with Jesus includes a mix between prayerful knowing that Jesus is connected with us and within us as well as living practical, productive lives. We are called to a balanced life. The story of Martha and Mary reminds us of this call to a balanced, full Spiritual Life where we see prayer in intentional meditation as well as living a productive God centered everyday life. God is alive within us and about us. We are called to be alert, progressive and inclusive as we live out God's Love in the world.
