Bible Study for Preachers

Just back from Bearsden where I had been at a day on the Gospel of Luke which we start reading in church from Advent Sunday. It was a day for preachers from all around the diocese and very well spent. John Riches from St Mary’s was our facilitator for the day. Introduction to what is distinctive about Luke first and then a Bible study this afternoon.

It is often a rare thing for people in my job to do Bible study with other preachers. Very fruitful too.

One of the things I noticed for the first time today was how Luke’s justice theme begins in the songs he quotes in the first couple of chapters. (Magnificat and More). I’d not really thought about that connection between Song and Justice, but I’m thinking more about it right now.
