Event Series Event Series: Public Reading of Scripture at CHOP

Date

May 1 at 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

Location

Cornell House of Prayer

Join us journey through the entire Bible together in the historic Cornell House of Prayer (CHOP), and snag some free pizza!

The Bible is a masterpiece of world literature and of immense historical significance. We welcome all to join regardless of religious affiliations.

This multi-level experience will allow you to slow down and absorb these fascinating and complex texts without pressure or expectation.

What is the value of the Public Reading of Scripture?

As we listen to the text being read aloud,  we are automatically forced slow down and only read at the pace of the reader.

Reading scripture aloud in community is an ancient practice, before books were widely distributed (or easily replicated) the main way these texts were shared was as they were read aloud in group settings.

Reading through the whole Bible offers an experience like no other- no skipping over the uncomfortable or focusing on your favorite verses, parables, or stories.

Every Wednesday! We’ll be here every week this semester, and we can’t wait for you to join us!
