It’s still the season of new years resolutions. Most people aim to lose weight and/or stop eating delicious bacon burgers (have you seen this?)
If you’ve decided to set out and commit to some kind of bible reading schedule, you’re not alone. Just about every year I try something new, from daily reading Oswald Chambers & studying the scripture verse he references to checklists and even some of that “new” lectio divina. But this year, I’ve found the most helpful plan over at bibleplan.org. It’s free, it’s streamlined, and it’s bible-tastic. It takes schedules — any kind you want from chronological to OT only to everything in between — and e-mails them to you. That’s the key for me: I see my bible reading plan in my e-mail every day at 5am. You can either read your own or click on their link to go over to biblegateway.com to read on screen.
So far, so good. I’m not terribly structured, but I am very oriented toward e-mail. This is what I’ve always needed!
