Reformation Scribes Needed

Reformation Scribes Needed

Reformation Scribes: The Gospel of Mark Project is a handwritten NRSV copy of Mark’s Gospel for worship use. Created by Reformation members and friends, all ages included, during the months of September and October 2020, Reformation Scribes: The Gospel of Mark Project assists to engage our congregation in living out our mission.

Each participant is encouraged to write, scribe, through cursive or printed handwriting, calligraphy or however one defines their handwriting. All handwriting, little or big, loopy or wobbly, printed tall, or written small is acceptable. Let go of that ‘perfect penmanship’ mindset and celebrate doing God’s work, with your hands. In addition, those who scribe might also choose to decorate, “illuminate,” their submissions. Illumination, drawings that accompany text, are not a requirement for submitting a scribed passage.

Deadline for all submissions is October 31, 2020. Reformation’s handwritten Gospel of Mark will be dedicated to the glory of God and be used in worship starting the First Sunday of Advent, 2020.

Would you like to participate? Register today using the link provided below to be part of this all congregation project. 

When you register, you will choose one of the 90 defined sections from the 16 chapters of The Gospel of Mark. All participants will secure their Reformation Scribes: The Gospel of Mark supplies at defined Reformation ‘drive thru’ dates identified in the link. If you seek to participate but, due to health and safety reasons cannot participate in a socially distanced drive thru, supplies can be mailed to you. If you have questions or need additional support, contact Deacon Beth.
