Growing as a Christian

"Turn to the LORD!  He can still be found.  Call out to God!  He is near."  
Isaiah 55:6 CEV


Two of the bedrock disciplines of the Christian life that are most important for spiritual growth are daily prayer and Bible reading.

There are many ways to pray, and many ways to read through scripture.  Below are some suggested links that draw on our Episcopal/Anglican prayer traditions, as well as traditions of others.  They also include ways of reading and/or reflecting on scripture day by day.
