Perhaps the only time you hear the Bible read aloud is in church. It's good for us all to read and study God's word and you'd feel a bit daft reading aloud on the tube. You'd probably feel nervous reading out loud in front of your family too. But the first writers of the scriptures assumed that their words would be read aloud by communities and individuals.
Our minds handle silent reading differently from reading aloud. In a one-off session (Wednesday 4 March 7.30 to 9.00 in the crypt) we'll be exploring how reading aloud, even softly by ourselves, can take us far deeper into a text.
This session is open to everyone, not just those who read the Bible as a ministry in our church services.
