Statewide Bible Reading set for July 14
On July 14 at 7:14 a.m. at each county courthouse in Georgia, there will be a short reading of the Bible. This is the third year the interdenominational gathering will be held in Georgia. In an hour or less, the entire Bible will be read across the state. The basis for this reading is taken from 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and see my face and turn from wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.”
The Statewide Bible Reading project was started by Dianne Bentley in 2018. Last year, 16 states and 57 countries participated. The goal this year is to expand the Bible reading in every time zone on July 14.
The Georgia leader for the project is Jerri Tuck. The leaders for Wheeler County are Stephen and Louise Keen. Everyone is welcome to participate.
