reading for all its worth

We have started reading Walter Wangerin’s The Book of God, as part of worship at Digestion, our interactive Sunday evening service.

The nominated reader comes and sits on our “Hot text seat” – a gorgous red chair, and away we go, listening to the narrative of God in history. When we feel done, we put it aside for next Sunday. It’s a bit like a bed-time story.

In evangelical churches, the Bible is usually reduced to a tiny bit that someone explains. My hope is that reading the Book of God promotes the story, unexplained, uncommented on, reminding us of the big sweep of God through history.
