This is a new year and so many Christians have a goal to read through the Bible in that time frame. I’ve done it and believe it’s a noble effort. Heck, I first came to faith while doing it! But reading the Bible in one year is a time commitment that many people may find to be difficult. Also, it doesn’t allow for much flexibility if you want to pause in a section and marinate in the word.
I had pondered a do it yourself reading non-schedule where I would read a chapter a day, figuring that would take about 3 years to get through it all. While a one year plan is a real commitment, a three year plan seemed like a noncommittal action on my part. Splitting the difference, I decided to use a two year reading plan from Stephen Witmer. Stephen, if you see this, your PDF is off by two rows!
In case you’d like to follow, I’ll give each day’s reading in a post. I may or may not include my thoughts as we go along. If you read with me, the time commitment will be 5-10 minutes a day. You can check this blog for each day’s reading, you can also subscribe via RSS or email to my blog. The email signup is on the blog sidebar toward the bottom, mom, so you’ll be able to find it easily.
