ACTIVITY: What is distracting us?
In this week's gospel Jesus visits Mary and Martha and shows Martha how distracted she is, and how she's missing out on the company of her guest because of it. This week take some time to make a list of the things that are distracting or worrying you. Sit down individually or as a family for about 5-10 minutes to make your lists. When everyone is done rip them up into tiny little pieces and combine them in a bowl big enough to fit them all. Go to your backyard or a local park and bury them. When you are finished, sit down on the ground above your buried worries and check in with one another about the experience. How do you feel after doing this activity together?
