The 6th Annual BIBLE READING MARATHON
Saturday, 12:00 Noon April 27to Thursday, May 2 12:00 Noon
A Judeo ~ Christian Event
"All the people assembled as one man at the square…He (Erza) read from early morning until midday…and all the people were attentive to the Book of the Law" (Nehemiah 8:1-3)
The community is invited to be a part of a tradition that is thousands of years old! "The word of God" – the books that now comprise the Old Testament were collected by the Israelites and revered as divinely inspired by God for hundreds of years before the birth of Christ. In fact the Old Testament recorded events where God's people gathered and stood for hours, listening to the scriptures being read aloud. At that time of course, there were just a few copies of the sacred texts and the only way that people could learn God's Word was to hear it read aloud.
In that tradition, Loudoun Awakening hosts the 6th annual Bible Reading Marathon on the Loudoun County Courthouse grounds in Leesburg. It will begin at noon on April 27 with the opening ceremony on the steps of the County Courthouse. Then join the procession from the steps to marathon site at the Loudoun Awakening tent positioned on North King Street on the north side of the Law Library. Area pastors and elected officials are the featured scripture readers for the first hour, starting with the Honorable Randy Minchew, 10th District House of delegates and Anglican Bishop John Guernsey, Mid-atlantic Diocese. The readings will proceed until midnight each evening and renewing at 6:00 AM each morning until Thursday, May 2nd, when the marathon concludes at noon, to coordinate with the National Day of Prayer.
Please join us at noon for the opening ceremony and come back to read with a group of friends from your church, fellowship group or bible study during the week.
