Your Handwritten Bible Passage
The Bible Society in Northern Ireland celebrated 200 years of ministry in 2007. The completion of an ambitious and exciting project to create a full copy of the Bible written by hand was achieved. Over 10,000 people took part writing the Complete Bible, and a second set of Gospels, over a period of 18 months. These volumes are now on display in Bible House and we still receive visitors wishing to see the verses they wrote.
Creating a Local Handwritten Bible Passage
It has been wonderful to help a number of groups create their own, local Handwritten passage, book or section of Scripture. Some have used this as a chance to build a sense of community, creating of a unique portion of Scripture that will be an item of interest to future gnerations.
Others have spent time writing Scripture to help them carefully meditate on the words and meaning they hold. Some have even used the writing process to connect with the scribes from centuries ago who painstakingly preserved God's Word for generations by creating perfect handwritten copies. In some cases the Handwritten Bible was found to be an interesting and unique way to reach out to people who may have had little interest in God's Word, setting up in a neutral venue such as a community hall or even a shopping centre.
Whatever the purpose or setting, there is no doubt that writting God's Word is an exercise that can have a profound effect upon people.
