Bible reading resources
The Lectio 365 app is a great resource if you are looking for something that is short, easily accessible and reflective in its style, helping you to think about a short passage of scripture and to pray each day.
If you are looking for something a bit deeper, you can study the BibleInOneYear with Nicky Gumble, which includes daily readings and commentary, either via the app or a daily email.
