8pm Thursday 25th November in the Parish Centre (AL3 4SL)
The new Church year which begins at Advent will source most of the Sunday gospel readings from St Luke. This evening session, led by Kenneth Padley, is an opportunity to get ahead of the lectionary by offering an overview of the third evangelist, his context and priorities.
The Christmas shepherds, Mary’s song the Magnificat, the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, Zacchaeus up his tree, and the Easter Day journey to Emmaus – these and more are stories unique to Luke. Come to this evening and find out why Luke wanted to share them with us and what they might mean for today.
