Queerying 6th after Pentecost C

Rev. Emily E. Ewing queeries the Gospel reading.
ID: A photo from Chona Kasinger of Disabled and Here shows a slightly overhead perspective of two disabled Black people (a femme wearing compression gloves and a non-binary person in a power wheelchair) holding hands while sitting across from each other with beverages on the table in front of them..
Gospel: Luke 10:38-42
38Now as Jesus and his chosen family went on their way, Jesus entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. 39She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Leader’s feet and listened to what he was saying.

40But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to Jesus and asked, “Leader, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me.”

41But the Leader answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; 42there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.”

Queeries for the text:
What kind of "sisters" were they?
Who listens at Jesus' feet today?
How are you distracted?
Who provides hospitality today?
Whose labor is un(der)appreciated?
Who needs help? Who is expected to labor without recognition?
What worries and distracts you?
What is the better part?

What are your queeries?
