I'm planning on having my club create and perform a 45 minute presentation that incorporates choral reading of scriptures, group hymn singing and short talks, possibly about the Psalms or the Second Coming (such a cheerful topic that often encourages the discouraged).

I'm not that excited about drama as a medium, and haven't heard much about clubs using choral reading as a ministry effort. (We'd go to nursing homes, visit the sick and shut-in and elderly.) There seem to be a lot of creative possibilities within this genre.

Have any of you ever heard or done choral reading? I participated in a couple of readings once decades ago at Mount Pisgah Academy when I was a student there (we had a VERY creative music teacher), but haven't heard much about it recently.

Surprisingly, there are books available through the library on choral readings from Bible. I'm pretty excited about the prospects.

That does sound exciting Linda. Have you considered creating a Choral Reading honor? It would fit nicely in the Outreach category, and it would almost certainly spread the practice around the NAD.

I truly had thought about that, but I don't know how to get started. Any advice? I'm sure there is something in the posts on this site about starting and testing honors. What's the best place to start looking for the processes?

Thanks,

Linda

Found the answer. Pathfindersonline.org has a link for submitting new AY honors. I guess I'd better get busy because it seems that September first is the deadline for submission.... Of course, this COULD be September 1 of next year.

Blessings,

Linda

And you also need I think at least three (3) to pilot the honor.

True.

I'd offer the opportunity to pilot to this forum, of course. I'm also planning to query other PF directors at the conference PF Leadership Covent ion (held in about a month) to see if they're interested in helping pilot, especially those directors I know personally.

So far, I believe I have enough information to write the requirements and the answers. Onward and forward!
