A grand idea

I believe there should be a device that looks something like a wall clock, but .for its face has an opening where a long roll of paper with the Bible printed on it is being constantly fed through. This would allow anyone in the room to let there eyes randomly fall on scripture at any time; people in the room could discuss interesting passages that went by as they noticed them. This device should be well designed like a nice clock so that people will be more drawn to it. It would be easy (trivial) to do this electronically as a screen saver, but what would be ideal is if it was actually a scroll printed in one column like one long page that somehow looped so that it would always be scrolling forward, my wife suggested a mobius loop which seems like a good idea but i still cant quite visualize how to roll up part of a loop to keep the object compact.
