This past Sunday, a group of us worked together on the practice of reading scripture in worship. Reading scripture is something that should be taken seriously and done well, because the Bible is the primary way that God speaks directly to us!
By popular demand, the notes from this workshop are available here in PDF format. These ideas may be helpful to you in your own devotional reading of the Bible, even if you are not a regular scripture reader in church.
For more information and for a terrific resource on the public reading of scripture, please check out Clayton J. Schmit’s book Public Reading of Scripture. Buy a copy yourself, or see me and I’ll be glad to lend you mine!
