Miqra: Reading of the Bible in Its Entirety

Be a part of a transformative event!

On March 9-12, St. Andrew’s in the Heights is hosting a Miqra. Miqra is a Hebrew word that means “a public reading of scripture,” and that’s exactly what we will do. We will read the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, in 72 hours.

 We hear readings from the Bible every Sunday, but how often do we really sit down and read the Bible? How does it relate to our lives? The Miqra is a way for the reader to spend some time just reading the Bible. This is not a performance; rather it is a way for us to spend some time devoted to understanding and honoring the book that defines what we believe.

 Anyone can participate! You don’t have to be a certain age, be an experienced lay reader, or a member of St. Andrew’s. Sign up and schedule your time at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0849a4a92ba3fb6-miqra.

 Check out the schedule for this special event and make sure to participate.

 Saturday, March 10, 9 AM-3 PM –  Explore the Hands-on Bible Museum, and experience the Bible through music, stories, and art. All ages are invited to spend the day being inspired and challenged by what we know and what we can discover about our sacred texts.
