Hey Griffin! The community part of your reading plan suggestion is crucial, in my opinion. My parents and I have been going through the Bible in a Year podcast together and it has been such a beautiful time of insights, questions, and growth. My mom, dad and I each see different details/connections in the various old and new testament passages which has all helped enriched our communal understanding of the book. I also led high school students and found many didn’t know what diving into scripture looked like; they would only open their bibles if they were told to or to read a couple verses to “check off” a daily quiet time. I’m hopeful about this new generation though and would love to see more folks open up about their experiences and thoughts.
