Stephen and Neville have both had long research and study interest in Luke’s Gospel. This day will highlight leading themes in Luke, geared to the preacher and lovers of this Gospel. Four sessions will be offered on such things as reading Luke with the Old Testament, the special parables of Luke, women and social justice, angels, and writers and commentators. We have chosen a Saturday to make the input as accessible as possible for all ministers, especially those who have other work, and we want to keep costs down so bring your own lunch and a Bible (preferably the NRSV).

Stephen Laird is University Chaplain and Associate Lecturer at the University of Kent as well as Parish Priest of Blean and Tyler Hill in Canterbury.
