Day of the Word

Famous actress, Roza Anagnosti, readingfrom the Gospelsof Luke the song of Mary

The Bible Society of Albania organized the event called the “Day of the Word” at the Catholic Cathedral of Saint Paul in Tirana. Believers from the three main denominations in Albania, Catholic, Orthodox and Protestants were gathered together in an event to read passages from the Bible. Each church was represented by three readers and some of them were professional actors. The most well known actress was Roza Anagnosti, one of the most important actors of all time in Albania.

The Bible readings were chosen from different books of the Holy Scriptures in order to speak about the salvation plan of God from the creation to the end of the World. The main theme was Jesus as the Word of God who saves the World. Bible readings were followed by short time of meditation with music in the background.

“My heart was filled with joy. It was one of the most amazing services… I am wordless because of The Word.” says pastor Genti, pastor of one of the biggest Pentecostal churches in Albania.

The Bible Society of Albania hopes to hold this event each year in different church venues. For next year the Orthodox Church has offered to host this event in one of their venues. Please pray for open doors in peoples’ hearts to be part of this event and for wisdom on our part to organize it well.
