    Abstract

    Sunday matters or should matter to Christians. It is the Lord's day and so the most important day of the week, a time for us to acknowledge God as the source, centre and goal of our lives. Because Sunday is a matter of importance there are important matters to consider on this day, such as time for prayer, worship and being nourished by the Word of God. The reflections on the lectionary readings for Sundays and major feasts are designed to show that the Bible itself is an invitation or challenge to think. It does not impose its views because that would be most ungodlike - according to the biblical understanding of God. Much of life is about making decisions and the Bible challenges us to decide where our priorites lie. The reflections offered are relatively short (around eight hundred words each) so that all the Sundays and major feasts of a liturgical year can be included in one book.
