A Lot of LIGHT Reading

From Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 at 9:00 am until Sunday, June 18th, 2017 at 5:30 pm

This year St. David’s Cathedral celebrates 200 years of biblical ministry in the heart of Hobart and the Bible Society celebrates 200 years of Bible distribution. We have decided to mark these anniversaries by having a public reading of the whole Bible by Christians of Tasmania. We will do this in the midst of an arts festival in our city focused on silence and darkness believing that God’s spoken word brings light.
We will be using a single large print Contemporary English Version (CEV) provided by the Bible Society and reading it from cover to cover.
The public reading will start with Genesis at 9am Wednesday June 14th till midnight, then Thursday, Friday and Saturday 6am till Midnight, and from 11.30am – 5.30pm on Sunday, a total of around 75 hours reading which should, all being well, take us to the end of Revelation. (There will be some working around other services on at the Cathedral.)
As the reading goes on we hope that people will come in to listen and will join in pray in the Nixon Chapel for our ciy. There will be Bibles available for people to take as well as other evangelistic literature with offers to learn more about Christianity.
What are we asking for: Churches, Schools and special guests to join us.
Please pray: whilst there is much to organise, this is a fairly simple exercise in trusting that God through his Word would bring light to our Churches, our Community and our City.
Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

More information for Churches wanting to be invovled can be obtained here.

Notes those involved is here for Church Leaders and Bible Readers.

Please use the arrows to move to the week of June 14 to see current proposed plan and available times for Churches to volunteer.  This will update as more information is available.
