If you didn't take up this challenge as a New Year's Resolution, why not pick it up from here as a discipline for Lent. Rather than giving something up, take up spending time alone with God in His Word everyday. There are free reading guides in the walkway by the church office, you can find one in a hymnal if you own one, and there are Daily Bibles you can purchase or free apps to help you for your phone. Of course, there are links to Scripture reading right here too-
