Reading for Holy Ground – Words & Silence

This is, I’m afraid, quite urgent. I need you to record in the usual way this following text, and email it to me at  From there I can create it into a multimedia reading for the service on the 11th September. I therefore need it recorded and sent by Thursday 8th Sept at the latest. Please share this and encourage others to contribute, the more voices: ages, genders, accents, the better… The tone I am looking for is ‘meditative’.



Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying, ‘What are you doing here, Elijah?
‘Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.’
Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the LORD,
but the LORD was not in the wind;
and after the wind an earthquake,
but the LORD was not in the earthquake;
and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence…..

Pay heed, listen to me;
be silent, and I will speak.
If you have anything to say, answer me;
speak, for I desire to justify you.
If not, listen to me;
be silent, and I will teach you wisdom.’

Thank you.
