TUSCALOOSA BIBLE READING MARATHON ENDS THURSDAY

Area churches and ministries are teaming up this week, reading the bible around the clock until they’ve run through the whole thing on Thursday.

The second annual Greater Tuscaloosa Bible Reading Marathon is being held at the First Baptist Tuscaloosa Chapel across from the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse on Greensboro Boulevard in downtown Tuscaloosa. The reading began Sunday evening, and continues 24 hours a day until they’ve completed the book of Revelations around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

Event coordinator Greg Rogers said the event is offered to fulfill a special scripture in Revelations.

“Revelations 1:3 it says, ‘Blessed are those who read the word aloud, and blessed are those who hear it,” Rogers said. “When I heard about that, I thought, wow, even if the person just reads the word there’s a blessing for them.”

A national day of prayer observance begins across the street on the steps of the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse as the reading concludes Thursday morning.

A NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER OBSERVANCE WILL BEGIN ACROSS THE STREET ON THE STEPS OF THE TUSCALOOSA COUNTY COURTHOUSE WHEN THE READING CONCLUDES THURSDAY MORNING.
