Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Grace United Methodist Church

Dayton, Ohio

"Grace by Heart" formed at Grace United Methodist Church after Tom Boomershine led a Fall 2007 series of classes on learning scripture by heart. Starting that Advent, the scriptures have been told every Sunday in worship. On Maundy Thursday 2009, Grace by Heart performed the passion and death of Jesus, according to the Gospel of Mark.

Many of the scripture tellings during worship are available on YouTube and may be accessed from the church website.

See the video below for a discussion with Grace by Heart members about their experience of telling the scriptures in worship.
