Seem to have stirred Jesus up into taking his mission more seriously again and getting back to basics. Peter and the others are up for more touring and less cosying up to the rich and influential. I haven’t yet told them I won’t be joining them. I’m happy to stay around here for a while and do some writing, but then I’m going back to Nazareth.
Mary complained that he had soon tired of her, but I think in a way she’s pleased things are picking up again. She seems more than happy to have the company of the other three Marys anyway, and they spend a lot of time chatting together as well as grinding corn, baking bread and doing other essential work. She looks a bit strained at the moment but says she feels fine.
