Welcome – 23 January 2022

And all the people
gathered as one man into the square before the Water Gate. And they told Ezra
the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses that the LORD had commanded
Israel. So Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, both men and
women and all who could understand what they heard, on the first day of the
seventh month. And he read from it facing the square before the Water Gate from
early morning until midday, in the presence of the men and the women and those
who could understand. And the ears of all the people were attentive to the Book
of the Law.

Neh 8:1-3
