Public Reading of Scripture

September 22, 2021 @ 12:45 pm - 1:30 pm

Did you know that it takes 70 hours and 40 minutes to read the Bible through aloud? 52 hours and 20 minutes to read the Old Testament, and 18 hours and 20 minutes to read the New Testament. The longest book, Psalms, will take 4 hours and 28 minutes.

Consider joining us every Wednesday at 12 pm EST as we read through the Bible. All are welcome to join us online. Join when you can, leave when you must. You will be muted, your video can be turned off, you can be anonymous, and you can eat your lunch with no disruption. Your only requirement: listening. This is a time saved just for you. A mid-week break in a sense. Experience a few moments of peace, of reflection, of assurance, of hope.

Harvard Law and Harvard University students, staff and faculty. We will be offering a complimentary “grab and go” boxed/bag lunch* for you to pick up at our office Austin 009 anytime after 11 am on Wednesdays and then take to the designated eating areas on campus. We will have some limited space in our Austin 009 office with required masks for you to join us there.

We will be offering a complimentary lunch box “grab and go” for pickup anytime after 11 am. RSVP

*Please email the Program at, by Tuesday (9/21), 12 pm to sign up for this complimentary lunch and designate if you desire vegetarian or gluten free.
