19:30 - Windows already provides a four-week course introducing the study of the four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. We are now beginning a programme of looking at each Gospel in more depth and in coming years it is the intention to provide a four-week course for each Gospel. In November 2019, the Revised Common Lectionary moves into year ‘A’ which focusses upon readings from Matthew’s Gospel each week and thus – this seems a sensible place to start. The course will be written by Canon Alan Bashforth and will look at questions of context and authorship, structure and meaning in a way that will hopefully prove useful for the would-be preacher or simply the casual observer.
The course will run for five weeks on 4th,11th,18th,25th November in the usual time slots of 10am-12 noon, 2pm-4pm and 7.30pm-9.30pm, and will be taught in the St Luke’s Room of the Old Cathedral School,
Free to attend, with donations gratefully appreciated.
