March 2nd (Ash Wednesday) marks the start of Lent – a season of reflection and preparation leading up to Easter. It’s a great opportunity for a spiritual MOT – a spiritual health check. Intentionally setting time aside to reflect on our relationship with God, our practice of prayer, bible reading, serving, giving etc.
If you do not have a daily practice of prayer and Bible reading – or if your current practice needs a refresh – you might like to check out the following resources:
