#BIGRead14: Joining In

Medieval style 2

Over the past few days, we’ve published the house group materials (so far). We also know that we’ll be formally launching the book/materials at Durham Cathedral on 2nd March 2014, are in discussions with Newcastle Cathedral to display the poem of the week, and are considering a Google+ Hangout Housegroup on a Thursday (8pm-9.30pm).

There are also opportunities to join in daily. Below is a list of the daily titles for poems. We are looking for people to read/record these poems (MP3 format) – see the Doodle to select an option. The best way to engage is to get the book Barefoot Prayers (SPCK), although we will publish the poems daily.

We would love to see creative responses to the poems, including suggestions of Bible verses that they make you think of, art/photography (especially if you’re doing 365 photo), poems written in response, or reflections/questions you may think of… keep it simple though – this should nourish you, not become a pressure!
