The Big Read

The Gospel book for the Revised Common Lectionary Year C which began on Advent Sunday is Luke. And during 2010, the BIG READ is focusing on Luke's Gospel in a variety of ways. 

 

There are three ways into the Big Read:

  • individual reading of the SPCK book on Luke's Gospel (Lent for Everyone - Luke)

  • in facilitated groups (during Lent 2010 or otherwise)

  • at larger gatherings between January and May when Bishop Tom Wright will speak on  Luke's Gospel

(after Easter Bishop Tom will talk on the Acts of the Apostles) - click here for details of venues.

Some questions to think about for those reading Luke's Gospel 
If you are a member of a Book-Reading Club, why not take Luke as one of your books for 2010?  And to help you the Diocesan Council for Mission have come up with a series of questions. The questions are ideal for working through with a small group (eg. a book-reading club or home group) or as an individual.
