I’ve started using a really neat iPhone app – it’s called YouVersion, and it is basically the full Bible (in several versions). It also allows for notetaking, highlighting, etc. And it gives you 3 verses for the daily reading (using the plan developed by Robert Roberts). I like the fact that I can easily reference the Bible from anywhere (my physical Bible is large, and not something I carry with me regularly . . . but I always have my iPhone). I’m trying to get back into regularly reading the word, and the fact that I can do a bit of daily reading each day as I ride MARTA to work is awesome to me!
The app was developed by LifeChurch.tv – is anyone familiar with this organization? It seems like this is a really interesting concept – a church that is primarily based online. There are several service times, they’re big into podcasting and social media, and they appear to have a very active blog. I’ve always thought that the communal nature of the Internet would be an interesting place to try and grow a church home, and it looks like LifeChurch.tv is attempting to do just that. I’d love to hear more about how this works if you’ve had some experience with them!
