The Sunday lectionary readings for the Sixth Sunday after Trinity in Year C continue through Luke’s gospel, and we now reach Luke 11.1–13 and Jesus’ teaching on prayer.
This is part of what looks like a ‘manual for discipleship’ in these chapters, and it combines the question of prayer with our calling God ‘Father’, the role of the Spirit, and the coming of the kingdom—all important themes in this gospel.
James and Ian explore these questions and reflect on their importance in preaching and Christian living.
