How do ministers, pastors, lay preachers handle a hostile congregant after a sermon?

I suspect that the issue was your rumination that Jesus may have "regretted" his response to Martha.

Regret implies Jesus may have erred.

A fallible Christ doesn't work for many and of that number there will be strenuous objection to any such suggestion.

Other issues may be that the message appears to focus more attention on custom of the day rather than the point Jesus seems intent on making.

Does not such light fall from the heavens ... just to turn things over ... and thus the earth is said to glow some 20 times brighten that the moon or those mooning in opinions? Consider what happens to the minor reflections ...

I invited them to discuss their concerns with me. Once it happened right after my message in the service. The person concerned knew me already, and something I said triggered her. We talked about her concern in the service, she indicated she could no longer listen to my messages, and I wished her well in choosing a congregation where she felt more comfortable. She left on good terms with me and the congregation.
