The Ohio Scriptorium and Bible Festival (2020) ——- 6th Year Edition

… featuring the ENTIRE book of Psalms!!!!

Available Psalms

 

 

 

For the 2020 Ohio Scriptorium & Bible Festival, our focus is on The Book of Psalms.

Psalms is the largest book in the Bible when considering its 150 “chapters.” It spans nearly the entire history of the earth as it relates to the nation of Israel in the Old Testament; however, it also contains several prophetic psalms which detail future events, such as those surrounding the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ, as well as His people in the kingdom yet to come.

The book of Psalms is an ambitious book to tackle, but with nearly 200 people in attendance at the 2019 Scriptorium, as well as a large focus of study for the 2019 National Bible Bee being Psalms, and throw in the ginormous enthusiasm with which we ended our most recent Ohio Scriptorium & Bible Festival, we believe our dedicated attendees (and new ones to join us) will not only rise to the challenge, but also far surpass it!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to recite at least one psalm as an individual and/or as a family or group in the various forms of recitation that we offer. If you recited a psalm at the 2019 Ohio Scriptorium & Bible Festival, you have first “dibs” on retaining THAT psalm, but with ONE CAVEAT: You MUST recite it differently in 2020 than you did in 2019. So, for instance, if you did a “straight” recitation in 2019, you’ll be expected to dramatize or sing your psalm OR have someone join you OR you wear a costume or have props related to your selected psalm. If you’d prefer not to change things up, you may “free up” your psalm and allow someone else to reserve it. (Emails will be sent out in the near future to secure your intentions.)

As for others who did not recite a psalm in 2019, as of July 2019, individuals, families and/or groups can sign up for no more than one psalm per individual and one per family/group. (Multiple psalms may be reserved by individual members of the same family.) All registrants are encouraged to pray about and reserve each psalm with an established idea of how he or she intends to use their recitation to edify & bless others, as well as bring glory to God.

We also desire to have three (3) specific psalms put to song by some of our many talented musicians & composers who’ve been in attendance at the OSBF in the past. When the three psalms are announced, challenges will be proffered to all interested parties to compose music for one or all of the three psalms. Once all entries are submitted, we will give former attendees the opportunity to vote on the submitted compositions. From there, we will put out the challenge (dare we say, “mandate”?) for all attendees to learn the three compositions before the 2020 OSBF, in order that ALL of us will sing them at scheduled times during next year’s event! We believe this will be yet another beautiful way for us to collectively praise & bless the LORD while reciting THE book solely dedicated to praising Him.

Please send psalm requests using the Contact Form on the Register page. When a psalm has been reserved it will be crossed out in the list as soon as we are alerted to the request. (Please Note: Psalm reservations will be updated on this page by 10AM EST, the day following their request.)

For those who would still like to dramatize their psalm recitation with emotional expression, related props & wardrobe, and even assisting, but not disruptive or distracting, sound effects, may do so on either day. (All props, wardrobe & relevant effects must be disclosed in advance to Festival organizers and receive advanced approval.)

Friday is reserved for selected Psalms 1-80 + 119 (1-96).

Saturday is reserved for selected Psalms 81-150 + 119 (97-176).

The Ohio Scriptorium & Bible Festival strives for excellence in the handling of God’s Word. While we desire for all Bible recitation to be enjoyable for the orator, we especially want it to be edifying for the hearers; therefore, in reserving 1 psalm, we request that all who make reservations, whether for “straight” recitation or dramatization, must have their chapter(s) fully memorized and mastered, at least, four weeks in advance of their scheduled performance (i.e., by the end of May 2020). Festival organizers will require all scheduled performers to either perform their chapter(s) in advance, upon request, if local to our event, or submit video/audio evidence by the beginning of June 2020.

Festival organizers reserve the right to reassign or reduce psalm recitations in the event of cancellation, due to illness, injury, family tragedy, travel delays, other unforeseen circumstances, or lack of necessary preparation in order to recite satisfactorily (according to Festival Guidelines & Standards).
