New Read-Along! Good News for the Poor

Dear Students and Friends,

On January 24, concurrent with the adult Bible Study at St Luke Church, we'll begin our new Read-Along in the book, "The Gospel of St Luke: Good News for the Poor," by Father Lawrence Farley. The group study will be led by Lee and the worksheets so you can read along will be published on this website under the Read-Along tab (above) and in weekly web posts.

The first lesson will be about the personal qualities of St Luke and what they can mean for you.

Download the first Read-Along lesson here.

You can earn one credit for each lesson you complete. Simply download the lesson, fill it out, and e-mail it back to else10(at)gmail(d0t)com.

About the Book
The Gospel of St. Luke has been described as “the loveliest book in the world.” It was written by a Gentile for Gentiles, with the purpose of touching their hearts with the Good News of Christ. Luke speaks especially to the poor and the marginalized of society—including women—with an emphasis on joy, healing, and prayer.

With his gift for making the fruits of biblical scholarship accessible to the ordinary layperson, Fr. Lawrence Farley expounds this beautiful account of the life and ministry of Christ for contemporary Christians.

About the Author 
Archpriest Lawrence Farley currently pastors St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Mission (OCA) in Langley, B.C., Canada. He received his B.A. from Trinity College, Toronto, and his M.Div. from Wycliffe College, Toronto. A former Anglican priest, he converted to Orthodoxy in 1985 and studied for two years at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Seminary in Pennsylvania. He has also published A Daily Calendar of Saints.
