Bible Reading Marathon begins
Friday 24th June at 4.25pm St Magnus Church began to read the bible. It is expected (hoped) to take 75 hours to complete and as it end on Monday 27th we begin a service of Thanksgiving for all the work completed on the restoration of the church building. The Bishop of Aberdeen will be here to conclude the reading and to begin the service. This is the first time such an attempt has been made on Shetland and we have many people taking part from all over the islands. Sir john Scott began by reading Genesis chapter one.
Here are some pictures from the opening moments.
