Never heard of that before but I guess it still exists in some form. Here's comment from a few years ago from this blog post
We need to let go of the "Mary or Martha" concepts in our lives and begin to live with the love of Sisters in Christ. He has given us the ability to choose both! Living in the "&" gives us a daily stress-free life, full of love, faith, forgiveness, compassion, strength and most of all for me...peace. In our busy, routine days and struggles we go through, if we remember to walk in the "&", we will be able to receive the blessings and goodness the Lord has planned for us!
So, are you Martha or a Mary or both?
