Up Close and Personal with The Saint John’s Bible

Date: Sunday, May 11
Time: 12:30 – 2:00 pm
Location: Christie House Library
Hosts: Carmen Hoffman and Ann Lockhart 

When you see that big red Gospel with the gorgeous gold-leaf art on Sunday morning, do you wish you could see more, maybe even touch and turn the pages?

Now you can.

Come join us for a guided tour of The Saint John’s Bible Heritage edition volumes that are visiting Epiphany through August 2014. We’ll meet in the library in Christie House, listen to a short presentation on how The Saint John’s Bible came to be and how it came to Epiphany. There will be time for questions and hands’ on exploration of the Bible. If people are interested, we’ll show “The Illuminator,” a BBC video presentation about the artistic creator of the project, Donald Jackson.  It introduces the artists, scribes and their inspired process that combined Medieval artistry and contemporary technology to produce this 21st century illuminated Bible.

So, if you’re new to the parish, or just want more experience with and knowledge about The Saint John’s Bible, please come to the Christie House library after church on the Sundays listed below.  Everyone is welcome, including your friends and neighbors, your book groups and singing groups, your grandchildren and parents. This is purposely outside our regular church activities, so that we can share the bible with our broader communities.

RSVP to Carmen Hoffman. While RSVP’s are not required, they are preferred, The Library only holds about 20-25 people, and we will be providing a snack (not near the Bible!). So, especially if you are bringing a group, please let us know names, number of people and ages of children.

Also, if you are interested in having a presentation of the Bible to your group, organization, or classroom, other than at these Sunday times, please contact Carmen Hoffman.

Your hosts,

Carmen Hoffman & Ann Lockhart
