  1. This was *amazing* and I’m so glad we were a part of it. So many people in so many places and circumstances taking time to speak these verses, united by our faith and hope in Him.

  2. Sometimes we get to see it, don’t we? A sneak peek into the Church the way Christ sees her – spread out across countries and cultures and accents and following after Him hard and passionate and true.

    Thank you thank you thank YOU Seth and Amber for giving us the gift of sight today. What a treasure. This and you both!

    Much love and humble thanks,
    Lisa-Jo

    • I’m really proud of you ..Specialy you are too close to church ..Thanks Bino

  3. I am so sorry for those who’s verses got clipped. I am going to try to render again this week into 2 parts. Again, sorry for the technical snaffu.

    Thanks so much to all who contributed clips. You folks did great work!

  4. I’ve been wanting to write on this very subject, and you did it for me! Will be linking this up later. Thank you for saying what’s been on my heart. 🙂

  5. Oh, such BEAUTY. The beautiful church, indeed.

    Thank you Seth for the time and energy and work you have put into collecting readings and creating such a precious picture of His Bride. Oh, how glorious.

    Love, love, love.

  6. This is such an amazing idea! I love joining and creating Community around the Book of Ephesians … and what an inspiration it is for Holy Week! Is Part 2 (the rest of Ephesians) imminent? Or, did I somehow miss it? A huge THANKS to Amber and Seth!

    • Jessa,

      We would love to finish out the entire book of Eph. We have a bit of a running start on Chapter 5. Would love you to participate!

  7. Lovely, moving, glorious reminder of the power of the Word and the beauty of the body. Thanks so much for your work! This is a gift beyond gifts to begin Holy Week for me.

  8. That was powerful. I always remember what a pastor said, “If Christ loved the church enough to give his life for her, shouldn’t we love the church also?”

  9. It was great to read together and encouraging. May the Lord bless we all according to His riches.

  10. I like the last 2 scriptures very much, wonderful verses to end with. I pray we all come to grow in maturity in the body of Christ to His glory and honour. Praise to Him who holds all things in His hands. Praise to the Holy One of Israel. Amen.

  11. SO PRECIOUS!!! Many Thanks to each of you who sweetly read & ministered
    God’s Word to us on this day* Hearing the angelic voices of children reading Scripture always melts my heart!!
    Blessings,
    Susan

  13. Amber and Seth,
    THANK YOU again and again!
    I am going to share this with countless people in Kenya, East Africa….
    I want you to know that your vision and message – God’s message – will go a long way.
    If there is ever a project you would like to do recording our orphaned and other kids, parents and teachers in Kenya, please do let me know.
    You pick the verse – or let them…. or anything else.
    You guys are amazing.
