In advance of Monday’s International Day of the Bible, the National Bible Association hosted a special Scripture reading Nov. 17 on the east lawn of the U.S. Capitol to honor the country’s biblical foundation. Several Congressmen read from the historic Aitken Bible, printed in 1782, and Naticksqw Chief Caring Hands read the Lord’s Prayer from the Eliot Indian Bible, the first Bible printed in North America. U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black offered a prayer during the event, praying for the United States as well as the people of Paris. Sponsored by the National Bible Association, the International Day of the Bible encourages people to spend time in God’s Word in their own communities.
