All participants have to do is just show up at their chosen location and listen to Scripture or good books, while reading along in their print copies. There is no homework, no official interpretations, and no right or wrong answers. Visit our site to get the Public Reading of Scripture app!




Our approach to grantmaking is that of thoughtful investors. We invest in organizations that bring tangible value to their communities, and also target overlooked or underfunded opportunities.
