July 18, 2010 by the Rector

Using Rembrandt’s etching of Abraham entertaining the angels from the story in the Book of Genesis, the Rector talks about both hospitality and sitting at the feet of God for instruction the way Sarah offered hospitality to the visitors and the way Abraham sat at their feet and heard them say he and Sarah would be the parents of nations. In the same way, the story from Luke’s Gospel about the hospitality of Martha and the attentiveness of Mary (friends of Jesus and sisters of Lazarus) encourages us to be generous with hospitality and to sit at the feet of Christ learning how to be disciples. Both roles are important for both men and women, even though patriarchal cultures would not typically have women as disciples.
