2020-2021 Theme

We celebrate that God came to be with us, as one of us--the word became flesh. Too often we in Western Christianity have separated the spiritual from physical worlds. We think about heaven as positive, and our bodies as bad. But in recognizing that God came in the flesh, we also see that we are holistic beings- Body, Mind, and Spirit. To reach a maturity in Christ we must pay attention to our entire being. 

3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of the prophecy, and blessed are those who hear and who keep what is written in it; for the time is near.  Revelation 1: 3 (NRSV)


Reading the Bible aloud is the month of July’s Spiritual Practice to try. For many of us, Bible reading and devotions are a regular part of our relationship with God. But if your reading has become passive and rote, then try reading aloud. 


Reason one to read aloud: memory. I’ve noticed that the children at Vacation Bible School have been hearing and reading aloud scripture for the past two weeks. In that short amount of time, even those who can’t read have been able to memorize most of 1 Corinthians 9:24-25. It’s pretty amazing. 


Reason two to read aloud: understanding. When you read aloud it is easier to put emphasis on different words in a given verse. These different emphases can help you understand the verse better. For example, let’s look at the verse quoted at the beginning. How is God speaking to you as you read aloud each sentence with its different emphasis? 
 

Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of the prophecy.

Reason three: blessing. As the scripture from Revelation notes, you will be blessed.
