Reading Scripture the Way Jesus Did—Aloud!

Leadership Journal has an article on the team of scripture readers at Redeemer Presbyterian in New York, which is led by Max McLean.

The opening paragraph starts:

Actors Needed – To serve as Scripture readers for our morning worship services. Audition required. Please send acting resume to persons-name @

When this ad ran in the bulletin at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, New York, more than one worshiper wondered why the church wanted entertainers to read God's Word. Or why people had to audition.

Six years later, the jury's verdict is long in, and the comments are heavily affirming.
