Recently, a friend introduced me to a Bible App named ‘YouVersion.’
While I prefer My Sword (a lite mobile version of E-Sword), I have to tell you that I see a number of terrific positives for YouVersion and the way it can be used. First, with 177,000,000 users, it has an extremely broad reach (multiple languages and translations)!! Secondly, the ability to share notes and verses through social media or directly with friends is a neat option, but possibly the most enticing are the reading plans/devotionals with a little built in ‘award/badge’ system of encouragement.
A few of the existing reading plans are interesting, but the opportunity to create and share some Messianic specific plans is most tantalizing. Being able to further have users/readers link the plan/completion to their Facebook or Twitter feeds is also most useful.
I am studying through and trying to get my not so techie brain to understand how to create such plans to place on their main feed. Pray for me and if this is something you would be interested in participating in, drop me a note through the contacts page. Maybe we can work together for the kingdom!
If you are an app user, ‘friend’ me, ‘Pete Rambo’ so we can connect!
If you have some experience with this app, please share in the comments section!!

I like using the Bookmark feature turning the Title into questions… Like this…
Question: Are we hiding our eyes?
“Her priests have done violence to My teaching and they profane My set-apart matters. They have not distinguished between the set-apart and profane, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean. And they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, and I am profaned in their midst. (Ezekiel 22:26 ISR98)

I was looking at some of you images. Previously wondered Joe to I see them, figuring out now.
Questions are good… We need to provoke critical thinking.
I would totally dig a Torah Portion reading plan!! A great way to share insights, ask questions and like you say mark completion encouraging each other along!! I’ll be praying with you on the subject and I would enjoy helping out with such an endeavor.

Drop me an email… One challenge I see with the Portions and the way they set up the reading plans. I have looked at that one…. We may be able to solve it otherwise.
